Education Disability & Your Child (Wellington – ZOOM event)
Mar 8 @ 10:00 am

Do you have a disabled child or child with a health impairment at school? Learn how to get the best outcomes for your child with an Individualised Education Plan (IEP).

As a parent or caregiver of a student with learning support needs you have an important role to play in your child’s education. A partnership between you, the school and other professionals will enable your child to progress at their own pace towards customised goals, and to make the most out of their time at school.

This informative online workshop will lead you through the IEP process, how to have productive IEP meetings, how to foster inclusion in the classroom, and the types of funding available to you. Don’t miss this chance to ensure your child reaches their full potential at school.

When: 10am—12pm OR 7pm—9pm
Where: Join us remotely on Zoom
Cost: These workshops are free thanks to funding from Care Matters.
