This session will focus on IEP development, targeting selected sections at various sessions. Teachers will have the opportunity to discuss and collaborate on how to develop a compliant and meaningful IEP.
AM and PM sessions are available for each date. Attendance at only one session is necessary. Intervention Specialists who teach in public schools in Fulton, Henry, Williams and Defiance counties will benefit.
- November 7, 2018 will cover Section 6 of the IEP: present levels of performance, goal development and progress reports.
- December 5, 2018 will cover Positive Behavior Interventions and De-escalation Techniques. Educators can proactively address potentially challenging situations with students. We will review positive approaches to working with students who may be dealing with trauma and challenging behavioral patterns.

Middle and high school teachers (teachers of transition-age students), in particular, will benefit from this session.
