Join us for a session that will explore strategies for supporting young children with identified disabilities or suspected delays and their families during these challenging times. Consider how to develop a plan that will ensure a review of each child’s Individual Educational Program (IEP) or Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) in partnership with special education and early intervention partners in order to maintain high quality service delivery from a distance. Learn about how to support families as they navigate through the referral, evaluation and service delivery systems in their communities. Time for questions will be provided.

Topics include:

  • Discuss how to engage and support children with identified disabilities, or suspected delays and their families during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic
  • Consider strategies for providing services from a distance with special education (Part B) and early intervention (Part C) partners
  • Explore considerations specific to children with disabilities or suspected delays as programs reopen in the fall and as some children prepare to transition to kindergarten
