Location: Westchester Institute for Human Development 20 Hospital Oval W Valhalla, NY 10595 

The Lower Hudson Special Education Task Force is proud to present

We welcome students, families, school staff, attorneys, advocates and anyone who supports students with disabilities to join us for a program which will explore strategies to equip students with disabilities to take an active role in the development of their educational programs and plans.

Students are critical members of Committees on Special Education (CSE) and Section 504 Committees, and their voices are valuable. All students, regardless of age or disability, can play an important role in the development of their own Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan. This program will address: student self-determination; how parents can speak to their children about their disabilities; and barriers and solutions to self-directed IEPs/504 Plans (including the use of an interactive tool to help students prepare for their meetings). We will show video clips featuring students who planned and led self-directed IEP/504 meetings and have a facilitated discussion among attendees.

(Registration opens at 5:30 p.m.)
