Auckland Individualised Education Plan Seminar @ HUBWEST
Nov 8 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

As a parent or caregiver of a student with special education needs you have a very important role in your child’s education.

You know your child better than anybody else. A partnership between you, the school and other professionals will enable your child to progress at their own pace towards agreed goals, and respond to challenges that will help them develop their potential in all areas of learning.

The IEP workshop is about knowing what your child is entitled to, and how you can ensure the best outcome for your child.

For families raising children with disabilities or health impairments.

If you would like to know more, please contact Elaine on 0508 236 236 or email auckland@parent2parent.org.nz
