Join us at a Parent Support Group meeting for support and problem-solving on issues with which your family and child are struggling. This group is strengths-based, meaning we will focus on the strengths of your family and child to help find solutions and encourage self-care.
For this session, Darla Nelson-Metzger, Program Director at Families Together in Topeka, will present a Parents' Rights and Responsibilities workshop. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates a free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for children 3-21. This workshop will take a step-by-step look at the special education process with an emphasis on parental rights, including general education interventions, evaluations, the Individualized Education Program (IEP), and procedural safeguards.
This group is open to any parent/guardian living in Johnson County, Kansas. You do not have to be a client of Johnson County Mental Health Center (JCMHC) to attend.
The meeting link will be sent by email once you register.
