Sponsored by the New Hampshire Association of Special Education Administrators and presented by Drummond Woodsum’s special education team: Gerald M. Zelin, Erin R. Feltes, and Eric R. Herlan.

Have you noticed?  Nothing stays the same in special education!  Look at this lineup of developments:

  • In March 2017 the New Hampshire Board of Education amended the state’s special education rules.  The new rules include LOTS of changes, many of which will alter the way that schools practice special education.
  • A new First Circuit ruling addresses the interplay between the school’s written prior notice, IEPs, and questions about methodology.  This decision impacts documentation of every IEP meeting you hold.
  • Not enough?  You all know this – The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued its first ruling since 1982 on how extensive the school duty is to provide a FAPE.  This decision, in the Endrew F. case, may be the most important special education ruling by the Supreme Court in decades.

New Rules!  FAPE!  IEPs and WPNs!  Drummond Woodsum’s special education team will review each and every one of these new developments, and what they all mean for school districts in New Hampshire. This is a conference not to miss.

**This conference is a repeat of the May 11, 2017 conference, an encore for those who missed the first one.  Drummond Woodsum’s special education team will look at New Hampshire’s rule changes, new developments in identifying a FAPE, and the interplay between IEPs and written prior notices.  There will be something for almost everyone involved in special education.  Jerry Zelin, Erin Feltes, and Eric Herlan will review each and every one of these new developments, and what they all mean for school districts in New Hampshire.  This is a conference that simply should not be missed by anyone trying to keep up with special education.

Who should attend?

We recommend this conference for all special education directors, case managers, building principals, LEA representatives, private school administrators, people training to be any of the above, and anyone else interested in education and special education developments. Be there!

A written prior notice is one of the most important documents in special education, yet it remains one of the most difficult documents to get right.  Presented by Drummond Woodsum’s special education team, this interactive workshop will address these lingering questions about written prior notices:

  • When must a written prior notice be issued?
  • What information must be included in the written prior notice?
  • Why does it all matter? - A look at how written prior notices have been used in recent court cases. 

Participants will also have an opportunity to practice drafting written prior notices for complex situations.

Who should attend?

We recommend this conference for all special education staff, building principals, LEA representatives, private school administrators, and anyone else responsible for drafting written prior notices.

 This is a 5-day Academy designed to assist new special educators with the nuts and bolts of managing the special education process. Participants will learn how to apply the essential procedural requirements in each step of the special education process including Written Prior Notice, consent and timelines; to use evaluation data for educational planning; and to write appropriate IEPs that include present levels of performance, measurable goals and appropriate accommodations and modifications. In addition, strategies for good communication and collaboration with parents and general education teachers will be addressed at each step in the special education process. While designed for new teachers, the Academy can be a great refresher for experienced staff.
