Today’s webinar
Guardianship: Balancing Protection And Independence
November 13, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 PM EST
 


Parents want their young adult child with a disability to attain the maximum possible independence as he or she nears adulthood, but they must balance this with a need to put in place vital protections around important decision-making. In this workshop, attendees will learn about alternatives to traditional guardianship, including limited guardianship, conservatorship, powers of attorney and other legal strategies that provide varying levels of support and protection. Participants will learn how guardianship affects voting rights, marriage rights, and driving, as well as the ins and outs of disclosure of a disability in the workplace and in higher education.
This session is being presented by:

Best Practices for Paraprofessionals 
and Appropriately Supporting Students
December 6, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 PM EST

IEP teams make important decisions regarding individual student needs, corresponding class placements, and supports; schools frequently rely on hiring paraprofessionals to provide services for these students. This webinar will provide a discussion of criteria to consider when including students in less restrictive settings, determining if a 1:1 paraprofessional is appropriate, and the associated training of paraprofessional staff. The presenter will discuss user-friendly ways to make data-based decisions and determine student needs across the day. The goal of increasing student independence will be emphasized by discussing ways to introduce and fade supports and to monitor progress.
