“My Voice Matters”: Strategies for Special Education  Students to Participate in CSE Meetings

Empowering Special Education Students is a goal worthy of all of us. It is not always an easy thing to do, however. Come watch this wonderful video presentation of a program at one school district where this is happening. Not only are they empowering students, but they are also planning so that they can participate in and sometimes even run the CSE meeting.
After the video, participants will be able to ask questions and partake in a discussion facilitated by Executive Board Members of the Capital Region chapter of the Special Education Task Force. There will be discussion about what people see in the video as well as successful strategies as well as barriers to having students participate in their own CSE meetings.

The Capital District Special Education Task Force has an online mail list to share information about upcoming events and to allow  Executive Councilmembers to share information with other Task Force members. In an effort to avoid overwhelming your inbox, use of the mail list is limited to notifications of task force events and cannot be used for other purposes.  To join the Capital District mail list, subscribe here and choose “Capital.District.Special.Ed.Task.Force” on the dropdown menu.  You will then receive an email request to confirm your subscription by following the link provided in the email.  It's as easy as that!  

You may also subscribe to any or all of the other regional Special Ed Task Force lists, but you will need to do so one at a time.
