Individual Education Plans in the Public Schools, An Overview

Inclusive Education begins with the IEP.  The National Down Syndrome Society is the leading human rights organization for all individuals with Down syndrome.  April Kuss, Senior Advisor with National Down Syndrome Society, will join us to present her story and provide us with resources and information on the IEP including the "why" of inclusive education, how federal law supports inclusive education and how DSAF can help support families in implementing the IEP.
