Join education professionals from across the state for this exciting virtual conference as we explore child find, evaluation, and admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) supports topics. The Aligned! 2024: From Child Find to IEP Implementation conference provides expertise, best practices, and networking supports to assist public school district and charter schools.
As a result of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Identify effective child find practices.
- Identify comprehensive and integrated evaluation processes; and
- Develop appropriately ambitious individualized education programs (IEPs) for students with disabilities and provision of free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in the Least restrictive environment (LRE).
Conference sessions will cover a variety of topics including information from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and related network projects, evaluation of deaf and hard of hearing students, independent education evaluation, properly constituted ARD committees, and standards-based IEP process (writing present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP) and drafting goals).
Up to 12 CPE credit hours will be available for all attendees who participate in the live, synchronous sessions.
Recorded, asynchronous sessions will be available for 30 calendar days following the conference. CPE credit hours are not available for recorded, asynchronous sessions.
The session costs are fully funded through state and/or federal grants.
The session is intended for evaluation professionals, ARD committee members, and IEP implementers.
