HOLIDAY STRESS DURING THE PANDEMIC
Melody McCune, ACPS School Psychologist, will give tips on how to manage in this very different year. The holidays bring so much joy, but also a lot of stress. There are so many things to figure out this year; from explaining to your child how visiting with Santa won’t happen, to deciding how to safely have family gatherings, to trying to keep fun traditions, and even to managing money.

- IEP Workshop Series (1 of 3): Special Education Services in a Remote & Hybrid World - Questions to ask
IEP Workshop Series (1 of 3): Special Education Services in a Remote & Hybrid World - Questions to ask
The IEP Process – Building Partnership Through Conversations
Workshop 1: Special Education Services in a Remote & Hybrid World - Questions to Ask
What this series will address:
Why are IEP meetings often uncomfortable, awkward, and stiff? Educators and families all have a common goal -- to support the development of the child. Yet, educators often feel confused that families act like reluctant participants who are just fulfilling a requirement. And families often feel that they're viewed as intruders, whose insights and dreams for their child don't count.
In this virtual workshop series, Dr. Amy Pleet-Odle will explain perspectives of both families and educators and suggest questions families should ask to make the IEP process a productive experience for all. Participants in this live event will have interactive, problem-solving opportunities to practice with asking questions.
