Engaging students to participate in their IEP meetings has been shown to develop student’s skills in self advocacy and self-determination. This training will provide students with a better understanding of what an IEP is and why it is important as well as how to participate in and present information at their own IEP meetings.  This training is for young adults who have disabilities to learn the process of being in charge of one’s life. Leadership skills taught include advocating for yourself, leading and participating in your own IEP and making choices and decisions about career, education and living. This training will be provided by MPACT.  This course is worth 2 credit training hours.
