Training Opportunity for Parents

Critical Decision Points for Families of Children with Disabilities

The purpose of this training program is to assist families in understanding four things:

(i) what are the keys to their child’s academic success;

(ii) what decisions will they need to make regarding their child’s educational path;

(iii) at what point will they be making these decisions;

(iv) what information will they need so that they can make the most well informed decisions possible for their child?

This is a free opportunity for up to 100 participants per training session and includes mileage reimbursement and lunch on the day of training for all participants.

Lodging is also available the night before the training session for participants travelling more than 60 miles to attend but is limited to 25 rooms. As such, requests for lodging will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

To ensure that VDOE orders enough meals and a rooming list can be prepared in advance of each training, VDOE is requesting that anyone interested in attending pre-register as early as possible using the registration links below.
