Speaker, New Jersey Coalition for Inclusive Education, Inc., "Inclusion and the Law," Montclair, NJ


November 21, 2019 | 6:30 PM - November 21, 2019 | 8:30 PM EST

Featuring: Mary Frances PalisanoDebra A. Clifford

Inclusion is a very hot topic in many New Jersey communities. Although students are required to be educated in the least restrictive environment with children who are not disabled to the maximum extend appropriate, many of those participating in Child Study Team meetings and developing IEPs do not know how to properly apply the law surrounding least restrictive environment. This gap in understanding often leads to disagreements and disputes between parents and school districts.

During this workshop, the speakers will identify the law supporting inclusion and engage in a practical discussion about the law and strategies to support an inclusion model.
