Back to School..... IEP clinics!

We Care Services for Children and Care Parent Network are pleased to announce the arrival of fall IEP Clinics.  These IEP Clinics are designed for parents of children age 3 through 12 with signed IEPs throughout Contra Costa County.
These clinics – which differ from IEP trainings – will allow four to six families to participate in a three and one-half hour clinic in which they will receive both IEP education and tips, as well as hands-on answers to their child’s IEP questions.  The parents/family members who attend these clinics will be walked through the IEP document and learn how to have a productive IEP, how to read the IEP, and how to advocate during the IEP.  Parents will then be able to review and seek guidance on their own child’s IEP.
 IEP Clinics will be  held in English on the following dates:
·        October 2 (East County)- Led by Vi Ibarra
·        October 9 (Far East)
·        October 23 (South County)
·        November 4 (Central County)- Let by Vi Ibarra
·        November 13 (West County)
 IEP Clinics will be held in Spanish on the following dates:
·        September 12 (Far East County)
·        September 25 (East County) 
·        October 16 (West County)
·        October 30  (Central County)
 IEP Clinics will run from 9:00 a.m.—12:30 p.m. If you are interested in attending one of the clinics offered by me (Oct 2 or Nov 4), please let me know right away as space is extremely limited.  If you are interested in any of the other dates, let me know which one and I will put you in touch with the presenter.    You will be asked a few questions about your IEP as part of the intake procedure.
