Presenter: Suzanne Peretz, Director, Lower Hudson Early Childhood Direction Center

Location: Mt. Vernon School District

We invite parents of children who will transition to kindergarten next fall to learn about what special education services are available for school aged children with special needs. As equal members of the Committee on Special Education for their child, parents need the information provided in this workshop so they will be better able to participate as partners with their school district.
Parents will learn more about:

  • Their child’s legal entitlements to appropriate services and supports in the least restrictive environment
  • Comparison of CPSE and CSE services and programs
  • Committee on Special Education members’ roles and responsibilities
  •  Classifications and IEP development
  •  School age placement continuum of options
