Akhil Autism Foundation and My Gateway to Overcoming Autism in Life Collaborate to Present a Special Education IEP Boot Camp for Parents in New Jersey
It is announced, Akhil Autism Foundation and My Gateway to Overcoming Autism in Life -two non-profit organizations helping families conquer Autism – have teamed up in order to bring IEP Boot Camp, a special education seminar, to Metuchen, NJ, on October 4, 2014. Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed, founder of IEP Boot Camp, will be the speaker.
IEP Boot Camp is a hands-on special education advocacy workshop to empower parents, to lead their child’s special education team and create a student centered Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Catherine Whitcher will help parents devise education plans and strategies to assure their child is prepared for further education, employment and independent living as deemed by IDEA law. As a special education advocate for the past 17 years, Catherine Whitcher, brings innovative solutions for parents and school professionals to work together to achieve a free and appropriate education for all.
At the end of IEP Boot Camp, parents will have a further understanding of how to be the best advocate for their child who receives special education services. Each family will bring their child’s current IEP to IEP Boot Camp and receive specific answers for their child. Parents will create an action plan to change their child’s special education experience and results. All parents who have children in special education are encouraged to attend.
"Catherine Whitcher was nothing short of amazing this afternoon at our TACA Seminar in Crystal Lake. Parents who enlisted in her IEP Boot Camp today walked out of the seminar feeling a new sense of energy, clarity and empowerment! What a great afternoon!" - TACA, Crystal Lake Coordinator
“I felt so in charge yesterday while challenging the school. I was yelled at, lectured, and made to cry, but I taught them something about my son. I am in charge of my son’s education (including his recess)! Compromise and full disclosure of info will be the name of my game. Thank you for teaching me!” - Mom of 6 yr old and IEP Boot Camp attendee.
