This workshop is designed to address the needs of those living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Anxiety. Specifically, it will cover:
Creating An Appropriate IEP
The task of knowing what your IEP rights are and what to ask for can seem daunting. By law, an appropriate IEP should prove your child is making "effective progress" in all areas of need. Learn how to prepare for the IEP Meeting, read and improve your child's IEP, create measurable goals, and how best to navigate through the IEP process. There will also be a question and answer time after the presentation, so bring your IEP questions.

Kat started her journey with autism 10 years ago when she and her husband received their son’s diagnosis. She didn’t know anyone with a child that had autism and PHP’s Autism Support Group was a lifeline for her. She recently started a blog (www.StrivingMamas.com) to share her experience with other moms that have kids with autism. She is looking forward to meeting everyone at the meetings!
