IEP Support Program
NEW!! Does your child have an IEP? Would you like someone to review it with you, and help you to identify next steps and suggested goals?
Have we got a deal for you! Our experienced staff and some dedicated and wonderful teachers will review the IEP with the parents, identify a few goals to work on (2 or 3 at the most) and then outline a set of FUN enrichment activities to do both at home and at Peace Place. We will schedule short sessions (in half hour increments, some group work and some individual) to help your child maintain recently acquired skills and maybe even develop some new skills!
IEP Reviews begin June 15, 2020.
Program sponsored in the past by a generous grant from the O.P. and W.E. Edwards Foundation.
