Annual Special Education Conference: Balancing Act! Making the Pieces Fit for Students with Behavior Challenges
Our Drummond Woodsum special education team will explore all the state and federal laws that impact how schools intervene with behaviorally challenging students. This review will look at both regular and special education laws, and how they all fit together. This is a key conference for any school officials who have to address student behavioral issues in school. Among the topics to be addressed are:
- Maine’s new dangerous students law
- Maine’s Bullying Law
- Chapter 33 – Restraint and Seclusion
- Special education childfind and referral for misbehaving students
- Special education discipline rules
- Interim settings for dangerous students
- Tutoring and abbreviated school day rules
Our intention is to highlight how these various laws overlap and work together. In the process, we will attempt to answer the HARDEST issues presented under each of these laws. By the end of the day, we want the puzzle to be complete.
This is really a conference not to be missed, no matter what! Special educators, behavior experts, BCBAs, principals, assistant principals…Come one, come all!
