Special Education Advocacy Training for Tippecanoe County

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at the Tippecanoe County Library Public Meeting Room.

Special Education Consulting is proud to sponsor an introductory special education advocacy training meeting for parents within Lafayette School Corporation, West Lafayette Community School Corporation, and Tippecanoe School Corporation.

This is an informational and organizational meeting for a new advocacy training group for parents of special needs children in the Greater Lafayette Area Special Services (GLASS) catchment area. If you have a child enrolled in special education or have a child that you think should be enrolled but has been denied services, you will want to attend this meeting.

Light refreshments will be served and parents who helped shape today's special education programs will be available for questions.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Tippecanoe Parents and Professionals for Special Education (TPPSE) was an active special education advocacy group. Interest waned and the group disbanded. Perhaps it is time for a refresher course in special education advocacy. If there is enough interest, we can regenerate an advocacy group.

Three drawings will be held. You will have a chance to win one of three Wrightslaw books, From Emotions to Advocacy, All About IEPs, or Special Education Law. I look forward to meeting you all on May 2.
