About the event
When working with schools, parents of 2e learners often don’t know which accommodations, services, and strength-based elements they should ask for to support their child. For example, getting more time on assignments is a standard accommodation schools provide, but it can lead to assignment pile up and stress for your student. There is no book of accommodation choices - so where do you begin? What is reasonable and likely to be accepted and what is not?
Emon Reynolds will share creative accommodations she has requested and what has worked and not worked. Amber Wilburn will discuss parents rights in this process and the guide to IEPs for 2e students that she is creating in partnership with REEL. Neuropsychologist Mark Westerfield will share school supports he recommends for 2e students in his neuropsych evaluations. We will also do a crowd-sourcing exercise to generate a list of ideas across various challenges, strengths, and K-12 grade levels. Come away with concrete supports you can request!
