Do you have questions or concerns about your child’s IEP or Section 504 plan?  Are you wondering if your child’s special education and/or 504 needs are currently being met?

The Free IEP Review Day will provide parents/guardians an opportunity for a one-on-one review of their child’s IEP/504 plan with a special education attorney* and a special educator** at no cost. The review session will be up to an hour and will include a review of select school records and documentation and an opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback. 

We can only accept a limited number of participants and priority for time slots is for low-income families.

If you are interested in participating, please complete this brief questionnaire by March 5th.

Selected participants will be notified via email. The event will be held in Montpelier on March 25th.

Please contact our office if you have any questions.
