Monthly Legal Training Calls (2019)

Course description

What do kids do for 30% of their day… go to school. 

Advanced Advocacy in Education is something every practitioner needs to know. This course describes the Federal and State laws regarding education and advocacy therein. After completing this course, the practitioners will be able to distinguish between RTI, IFSP, IEP, and other accommodations that are available to our students. 

A practitioner will also be able to find ways to advocate for their child both in and out of the classroom. One way to break the cycle of abuse is through education. Though this course, the practitioner will have tools to break that cycle.
