Working Collaboratively with Diverse Families in the IEP Process
Presented by Clara Hauth, Ph.D., and Catherine Creighton Martin, Ph.D.
Per the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), families of children with disabilities are equal stakeholders in IEP meetings. With the number of students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds increasing each year, working effectively with diverse families in the IEP process is especially important. Learn how to involve your students and families from diverse backgrounds in the IEP process, and ensure that all your students receive the educational support they need.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify family characteristics to be aware of when working with diverse students.
- Understand cultural and linguistic challenges to address when working with diverse families at IEP meetings.
- Identify ways to facilitate involvement from diverse families.
- Share strategies to help families of all backgrounds feel welcome and respected at IEP meetings.
