Parents Helping Parents will help you find the right school-/community-based services for your youth and/or teen with special needs.
We will help you understand special education evaluations and assessments. A good place to start is our E-Learning library that has many helpful videos to guide you on Special Education topics like
- How to prepare for an IEP team meeting?
- Who’s on the IEP team?
- What are the eligibility categories?
- What should you know about signing your student’s IEP?
- and lots more!
You may need to request an assessment from your district to learn if your child can receive special education services. We have a video about Requesting an Assessment in E-Learning and you can also click here for template letter.
We will show you how to become an advocate for your child and an active participant in their education. Together, we will discuss other services your child and family may need. These services may include therapies, assistive technology, an individualized education plan, public benefits, and more.
As your child grows and starts to transition to adulthood, Parents Helping Parents will continue to be your partner in finding the services your youth or teen with special needs is eligible to receive.
