Description: 

Back by popular demand, the "ADA Live!" Show: Back to School—What Parents Need to Know Before the School Year Begins is being rebroadcast by the Southeast ADA Center. This session of WADA ADA Live! will explore what parents need to know to help their child’s school year get off to a good start. Topics include establishing a good relationship with your child’s teachers and staff; helping a child who is very anxious about going back to school; who decides when an IEP should be scheduled; how to prepare for the IEP or 504 meeting; ideas for following up after the IEP/504 meeting; and what students with disabilities going on to college or vocational training need to know.

Join Georgia Fruechtenicht as she answers some of the most common questions from parents about how to collaborate with teachers and staff to make the school year successful for their child.
