We are so excited to announce that online registration is now available for our Student-Directed IEP Training!

This training will be held Monday, 12/18 and Tuesday, 12/19 in Columbia. Youth will identify their own strengths and opportunities for growth. Students in attendance will construct their own goals and a plan to effectively attain them while considering obstacles to those goals and how best to deal with setbacks. Students will be able to effectively communicate these goals to various attendees in a clear and respectable manner. Structured activities will be available for siblings ages 6 and older.
This training is free but advanced registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
