Preconference : Current Trends and Legal Issues in Special Education

On Tuesday, August 27, David Bateman and Mitchell Yell will present a preconference titled, Current Trends and Legal Issues in Special Education. School leaders and special educators are expected to be experts on all levels and types of special education law and services, types of disability, and aspects of academic and functional programming. With the increasing demands of the job and the ever-changing legal and educational climate, few feel adequately prepared to meet the demands. This session will include the legal hot topics in special education litigation, along with recommended practices for educators.

Participants will receive a copy of Current Trends and Legal Issues in Special Education as a reference to build and support timely, legally sound, and effective special education services and programs.
