School professionals in districts across the country are increasingly facing the special circumstances and needs of students who have experienced trauma. In addition to the sensitive situations that have to be handled with care, staff have to be aware of legal issues and how trauma can impact a student’s educational development.

Through case law examples, attorney Teri E. Engler, will share how hearing officers and the courts have addressed these issues and what schools can do better to meet their legal obligations. You’ll get an inside look at how to:

  • Identify child find obligations that may apply with respect to students
    who have experienced trauma

  • Recognize students’ potential programmatic needs and the legal issues
    and pitfalls that may arise in addressing those needs

  • Determine when and how a student’s trauma background may
    impact disciplinary options and decisions

  • Address the discrimination issues that may arise in identifying and
    responding to students’ needs

  • And more

Student populations are growing increasingly diverse, and your school or district is trying to ensure that transition practices keep pace with students' needs. But are you also keeping pace with legal requirements?

With a review of recent case decisions and enforcement trends, attorney Bobby Truhe will give you a solid understanding of the legal obligations surrounding transition assessment and planning. Then, turning these decisions into practical guidance, he’ll illustrate the line between sufficient and insufficient services — so you know what practices should be avoided and which practices can be used to improve transition services and IDEA compliance.

You’ll take away the knowledge and case-based strategies to:

  • Critique your school’s transition practices in light of the most recent cases, statutes, regulations and policy guidance, and make changes where necessary

  • Avoid falling into common traps in transition assessment, planning and goal setting

  • Apply proven strategies to improve transition practices by better identifying and utilizing available resources

  • Consider transition in the context of related issues including graduation, social skills and life skills

  • Collect more robust and informative data and engage staff members in the development of appropriate transition services

  • And more!

As litigation in this area continues to emerge, get guidance to make legally sound decisions for serving EL students. Attorney Brandon Wright will take you through recent cases and agency guidance affecting how you program for English learners, including evaluation requirements, meaningful parental participation, and proper IEP services consistent with state and federal guidelines.

You’ll learn how hearing officers have viewed the appropriateness of EL evaluations and how best to use available resources to conduct IDEA-worthy evaluations. Plus, you’ll gain insights on how EL status can be a barrier overcome in general education, and not only through an IEP.

Develop procedures that don’t result in over- or under-identifying EL students as having disabilities — and avoid potentially costly compliance missteps — with expert insights to:

  • Ensure evaluation and referral processes are not discriminatory

  • Consider all relevant factors when determining whether an EL student has a disability

  • Write IEPs that provide FAPE for EL students under the Endrew F. standard

  • Make sure the prior written notice meaningfully conveys the IEP team’s decision to EL parents

  • Facilitate EL parents’ meaningful participation in their child’s education

  • And more!
