Parent and Student Focus Group

Thursday May 23, 2019 - 06:30 PM - 08:00 PM

Are you a parent who has a child or youth with an IEP? We want to hear about your experiences! What
is working well and what could be done to improve how children and youth receiving special
education are educated in Maryland public schools?

The State of Maryland is conducting a study to learn more about special education and the
Individualized Education Program (IEP) process in your school.

If your child or youth, Kindergarten to age 21, receives special education in a Maryland public
school, please register to participate in a focus group near you.

We also want to hear from students who receive special education, aged 10-21. Please talk with
your child about participating. Students must be able to understand and respond to basic
questions. One student per family. Registration is required. Space is limited.

Light refreshments and a $10 gift card will be offered. Interpreters will be provided (with
advance notice). Child care will not be provided.

The study is conducted by WestEd under contract for the state of Maryland.
