Know Your Rights: IDEA Procedural Safeguards
Procedural safeguards may seem like a dry topic, with long explanations and terms that are confusing or hard to understand to your family. Why are procedural safeguards important and how will they help your child? Procedural safeguards are the rights that protect you. When you know your rights, you're able to be an equal participant in your child's educational process and you know what to do when something isn't working.
Effective discipline is essential to raising children who have self-control, behave well with peers and adults, and choose to avoid risky behaviors. Join us as we discuss PRACTICAL, POSITIVE, and PROACTIVE ways to achieve this with your child.
