Demystifying the IEP: In-service Training for Volunteers

6:00pm - 8:00pm

Calling all CASA and EDM volunteers!  Come and join Dr. Lisa Dissinger on November 3, 2016 for a discussion of how to advocate for your client's educational needs based off of their individualized educational plan (IEP). Dr. Dissinger will focus on the how to look at the basic components of an IEP and how they can inform "good" educational decisions and advocacy, whether you are an EDM or CASA volunteer. All attendees are encouraged to bring in questions and concerns about their individual child's IEPs.

Dr. Dissinger is a child psychologist and certified school psychologist who works in many private and public schools in the Philadelphia area. She also volunteers for CASA as an EDM volunteer and will be available this year to provide additional supervision to EDM's with children in residential placement.
