Webinar Description:

Since COVID-19 has forced K-12 schools to close and shift to remote learning, your students’ education may look very different than it did a few months ago. What does this mean for students with dyslexia who are on IEPs or 504 Plans? Are you a parent who feels frustrated or confused but aren’t sure what you should do?

This webinar is designed to help parents and family members understand their legal rights, understand what schools are required to do to support students, and offer family members suggestions for helping and advocating for their students.  

Janet Thibeau is the founder of BTA Education, an advocacy, school/college consulting, and coaching firm based in Massachusetts. Janet has been helping parents and students navigate the special education process for over 15 years. She is a frequent speaker about dyslexia, special education, and parent/student rights. She previously served on the board of the Massachusetts Sibling Support Network and the Special Needs Advocacy Network (SPaN). She currently serves as the IDA Branch Council Chair. Janet is also mom to five students with special needs, including four with dyslexia.
