IEP University (IEPU)
June 5 @ 8:00 am – June 25 @ 5:00 pm
The IEP process can be difficult and stressful. Everyone comes to the IEP table with thoughts of their personal responsibilities, perspectives, and individual concerns. IEP meetings can be places of high anxiety and there are occasions when conflict may erupt as a result of managing emotions while simultaneously following policy and procedures. PEATC, in collaboration with VDOE, has developed IEP University (IEPU) to help provide families and professionals with accurate and useful information around IEP development and meetings. IEPU is a self-paced online training with easy-to-understand guidance on the special education process, the IEP document, and ways to develop collaborative relationships among schools and families. IEPU will target practical strategies aimed at helping future IEP meetings be more positive, productive, and collaborative for everyone involved.
A certificate of completion for 6 hours will be provided for all who complete the training.
The training will take approximately 6 hours and can be accessed anytime during the 3 week time frame (June 5, 2023 through June 25, 2023)
Stay tuned for future trainings! The next IEPU will be August 28 – September 17, 2023.
