Join us for an afternoon of putt putt!
Held every third Tuesday of the month, the educational series is provided by DSAF to its members - extended family and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Ed Series will continue to be held virtually via Zoom until further notice. (Zoom link provided below.)
A Notice is given with the IEP document that describes the proposed action and notice of decision taken by the school district as part of the IEP document. It also describes the evaluation procedures, assessments, records, reports and methods that were used in coming to the decision and other options that may have been considered and rejected by the IEP team in conducting the IEP review. We will review this document in further detail and provide you with the information your family needs in a time of fluid education due to COVID. Presented by TBD.

This session will focus on developing a positive behavior intervention plan with the schools within an IEP team.

Current event topics such as the use of restraint and seclusion, supporting schools and personnel, and protecting children by providing training for all members of the IEP team will be discussed. Presenter - TBD
School transportation guidelines have changed recently to include extended driver licensing and annual training. What else can we expect when it comes to transporting our children? How do we know if we qualify? These topics and more will be discussed during this session. Presenter - TBD
Transition and the IEP
Starting at age 14 there is a new part to the IEP process known as the "transition page". What goes into a transition page? What is included and who is involved in the transitioning of a student on an IEP into the next setting. What are the various options for students and who is there to help them decide? These questions and many more will be answered as we present transition and the IEP in this session.
Presenters: Transition Specialist, Dawna Daily, and a Representative from Nebraska Voc. Rehabilitation/Nebraska Department of Education.
