“The Goal Driven IEP: A parents’ guide to what to ask for at your IEP meeting for children ages twelve – college transition”

Posted by SwampscottPAC on January 19, 2013

The Swampscott Special Education Parent Advisory Council invites you to join us at our next workshop presented by Dr. David Stember:  “The Goal Driven IEP: A parents’ guide to what to ask for at your IEP meeting for children ages twelve – college transition” on Monday, January 28th, 7:00pm, at the Swampscott High School-Room B129.

The talk will cover:

Specific items and wording parents should ask for in their child’s IEP.

Common mistakes seen in ineffective IEP plans.

How to ask for specific goals, approaches and outcome measures that will be sensitive to whether progress is being made

Common best practice approaches to address: learning needs, social pragmatics, organizational skills and behavior/emotional problems (i.e., What to ask for, how to define it and how would you know that progress is occurring).

There will be time for a question and answer period where we will ask that your question be written on a 3×5 card so Dr. Stember can answer all in a timely fashion.

Dr. Stember holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and maintains faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital. He is a recognized expert in cognitive behavioral/exposure-based therapy for anxiety, learning and behavioral disorders.   Dr. Stember has given grand rounds presentations, trained educators and consults to a variety of districts throughout New England. He is the prior Director of Behavioral Medicine at North Shore Children’s Hospital, and maintains private practice offices in Salem and Arlington, MA.  He can be contacted at his Salem office at (978)-745-6555.
