The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
Presented by Phoebe V. Redmond, Esq.
This workshop will provide participants with key information concerning four essential compliance areas of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Nevada law. The four essential areas are: identification (including Child Find), evaluation, placement, and the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Assistance with issue spotting and case analysis skills addressing these four areas will be incorporated throughout the workshop. Participants will then be given the opportunity to apply and explore these skills while engaging with case-based scenarios and actual court cases. The workshop will also incorporate Nevada Department of Education requirements as appropriate, and a review of recent IDEA court cases will be presented. The workshop will conclude with a question-and-answer session.
This workshop addresses three (3) Nevada Educator Performance Framework (NEPF) Goals:
· Foster student learning and growth
· Improve educators’ instructional practices.
· Engage stakeholders in the continuous improvement and monitoring of a professional growth system.
As per the Office of Teaching and Learning Nevada Department of Education, this workshop will serve to provide:
· Academic Knowledge: Adherence to Nevada Academic Content Standards, ensuring a strong foundation of subject matter.
· Professional Learning: A dedication to continuous improvement and the implementation of best practices for student learning.
· Access: Providing access to high-quality instructional resources to support effective teaching and learning.
This workshop will provide participants with legal and practical information concerning four essential compliance areas of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Nevada law, namely identification (Child Find), evaluation, placement, and the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Participants will be provided with the opportunity to develop case analysis skills and strategies that will support their delivery of special education instruction and services on an individualized basis. In addition, participants will be given opportunities to discuss and apply these skills and strategies to scenarios derived from real world court cases. The workshop will also include an update of the most recent cases interpreting the IDEA and conclude with a question-and-answer session.
At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to competently identify and understand four essential IDEA requirements. They will have the information necessary to understand these essential requirements and the reasons how noncompliance could affect the appropriate delivery of special education and related services. Participants, due to their participation in active discussions concerning realistic scenarios and actual court cases will have the necessary skills and strategies to negotiate difficult issues related to the delivery of special education and related services.
