domingue & steib recently presented a "Goal Setting for IEP's" workshop for Families Helping Families designed to teach families about the importance of goals and how goals are decided upon by the IEP committee. The objective was to empower families to participate in the goal development process rather than be a silent listener. Here are comments from the audience:
"Your wealth of knowledge is very much appreciated. Thank you for sharing."
"I got a lot of information that I can use to help my Granddaughter."
"Very informative and took time to explain and knew all information to questions asked."
"These ladies are so knowledgeable! They have all of the answers! Very informative! Thank you so much!"
"Thank you....Thank you...Thank you... for empowering families to advocate for their loved ones. Everyone has a right to an appropriate education. Thank you for all that you do to teach families how to go about getting what their child needs. You are touching lives in a positive way."
"This workshop gave me the encouragement to not give-up and to in fact continue with even more drive/determination than in the past. Thank-you!"
