To learn more about our efforts to support students with special needs during COVID-19, read our latest blog.
Class 1 (FREE) Introduction to Special Education
In our introductory class, we'll help you better understand that language and related services included in your child’s IEP plan and related services. We'll also provide you an legal update on the status of IEP and 504 meetings during the COVID-19 era, and give you a clearer understanding of your child’s education rights during the pandemic.
Class 2 Supporting your ADD or ADHD Elementary Student
For parents of students with attention and focus issues, working from home without distraction can be a challenge. A lot of parents think that at school, your child sits in a desk and just works. At home, you’ve likely had a rude awakening about how much movement and noise there actually is in a standard, structured classroom. So, from two teachers who have handled classes of 30 or more students, we’ll teach you 5 things you can do to make changes to your home, schedule, and management/monitoring philosophies to better equip you and your special needs child for the home-school lifestyle.
Class 3 Learning Disabilities and Accommodations at Home
Although all disabilities look slightly different in each child, the common thread among management of disabilities is that we accommodate the weaknesses that arise through positive supports and additional time. In this class, we’ll teach you how to better allocate time and space for your child, and to better understand why your expectations about task completion might be causing anxiety rather than resulting in completion of tasks.
Class 4 The Language of Disability
There are so many things that can cause child work avoidance. And there are words to use, and words not to use, that incentive your child to complete a task by reducing anxiety and barriers to completion. Calling your child lazy or becoming frustrated could pull you away as an essential support and your child’s only related service during this time. In addition, we’ll teach you how you can support building your child’s vocabulary through shifts in your own language as well as enhancing your child’s ability to express his education and support needs.
Class 2, 3 and 4 are $25 each.
