Parent Advocacy Workshops: An Introduction to Advocacy and I.E.Ps

These informative workshops will provide a broad overview for parents looking to receive information and support. Our subject matter experts will cover basics on navigating the school system, provide details on the I.E.P. (Individualized Education Program), the IPRC (Identification, Placement and Review Committee)  and suggest practical tips and ideas for parents who are looking to be the best advocates for their school-aged child.

This session is ideal for new members of LDAHH or parents who are starting their advocacy journey. Each workshop will contain the same subject matter, but parents are welcome to attend as many as they would like.

Decoding the Psychoeducational Assessment
Thursday, November 28th at 6:30 pm at the 560 Guelph Line (Rotary Youth Centre) in Burlington.

Learning Disability assessments are written in language that doctors and educators may understand, but that can be frustrating and overwhelming for parents and individuals. The meeting where you receive diagnosis can feel too short and the information too complicated to fully take in. In this workshop, you will learn the common terminology used in most assessments, what the scores mean and how they are relevant to diagnosis, and clarification of common recommendations and accommodations. 

This workshop is suitable for parents/caregivers of children with a learning disability, or individuals with a learning disability, who have gone through or are considering the psychoeducational assessment process. 

Presented by: Tara Carman, ADHD Coach, Owner and Director of the Artemis Assessment and Treatment Centre

Tara is the owner and Director of the Artemis Assessment and Treatment Centre and has guided hundreds of clients through the process of Psychoeducational and Attentional testing. Tara is a master in decoding assessment language and school board procedures for clients, helping them navigate educational systems and advocate for themselves and their children. Tara has diplomas in ADHD Coaching and Integrative Wellness Coaching. She is planning to attain her credential with the International Coach Federation (ICF) by the end of 2019.
