Workshop Summary 

The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) guarantees the right to a Free and Appropriate Education and related services to every disabled child between the age of 3 and 21. This workshop will assist educators in complying with their obligation and responsibilities to provide a Free and Appropriate Public Education (“FAPE”) to children with disabilities, by providing a comprehensive review of all the applicable special education laws so that ALL educators are fully prepared to improve achievement for ALL students .

The workshop will also address the step(s) per law that are required if a determination is made that a child has a disability and needs special education and related services, an "individualized educational program" or "IEP" must be developed for the child in accordance with IDEA, NRS and NAC to ensure optimal student achievement gains.
