    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
    thoughts of their personal responsibilities, backgrounds, perspectives, and individual concerns, and must
    navigate all of those while following procedures and regulations. This workshop is designed to help IEP
    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.
