Student, Parent and Family Engagement
Meeting The Needs of English Learners In Special Education

Training providing students, parents and families of children with disabilities information and resources that help support the special education process.

Important Session Information:

LRP Publications Education Webinars

Presenter: Brandon K. Wright, Esq.

Face to Face/Virtual.  This webinar can only be viewed at Region 10. 

Attorney Brandon Wright will take you through recent cases and agency guidance affecting how you program for English learners, including evaluation requirements, meaningful parental participation, and proper IEP services consistent with state and federal guidelines.

You’ll learn how hearing officers have viewed the appropriateness of EL evaluations and how best to use available resources to conduct IDEA-worthy evaluations. Plus, you’ll gain insights on how EL status can be a barrier overcome in general education, and not only through an IEP.

Develop procedures that don’t result in over- or under-identifying EL students as having disabilities — and avoid potentially costly compliance missteps — with expert insights to:

  • Ensure evaluation and referral processes are not discriminatory
  • Consider all relevant factors when determining whether an EL student has a disability
  • Write IEPs that provide FAPE for EL students under the Endrew F. standard
  • Make sure the prior written notice meaningfully conveys the IEP team’s decision to EL parents
  • Facilitate EL parents’ meaningful participation in their child’s education
  • And more!
This event is free to all Region 10 schools.
