PEATC in collaboration with VDOE - Capacity Building for IEP Teams Training
The IEP process can be daunting for everyone including educators. Everyone comes to the IEP table with

teams build capacity around participating in IEP meetings and collaboration. Discussion will include a
view from ‘both’ sides of the table, as well as information on the seven elements of highly effective IEP
teams. A certificate of completion will be provided for all who complete the training.
