Special Education Workshop

January 30, 2018
10:00 am
Sobrato Foundation

Date: 1/30/2018

Address: Sobrato Center, 350 Twin Dolphin Drive, Redwood City, CA 94065

Time: 10am-12pm

Speaker: Karis Daggs, Esq.

According to federally funded research, minority students are significantly less likely than their peers to be identified as disabled and may lack access to special education services. The underrepresentation of minority students also could stem from social and cultural obstacles

Opening Doors PTA is partnering with OCRA (Office of Clients’ Rights Advocacy) to ensure that all children with disabilities, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or language use, receive the care they need. We are hosting a free Special Education workshop for everyone, especially those in the Asian American community, to educate them about their rights in special education. Cantonese and Mandarin translations available.

Do you have questions about your child’s IEP? Would you like to know how to advocate for your child’s special education rights?

Topics include:

  • Overview of rights in the IEP process
  • Evaluations 
  • Compliance complaints 
  • Due process hearing
  • Rights to an interpreter at an IEP meeting 
  • Requesting documents in the parents’ native language.
