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 17. Summer FUN sessions begin July 8 and end August 16. - NEW - CONTINUED INTO THE FALL!
Program sponsored by a generous grant from the O.P. and W.E. Edwards Foundation.
Please call Louisa at 406-590-4925 for more information.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a six week class designed especially for parents and legal guardians of children with special needs. (There is also a version for geriatric care offered through the MSU Extension office.) It covers stress reduction, communication techniques and the importance of self-care.
Peace Place offers this class free of charge. Respite is available during the class ONLY for those enrolled. you must attend the class in order for your child to receive care.
We are compiling a waiting list of those who are interested in the class, so please sign up to be informed when the next class will start.
