Panel Discussion May16th: On the Same Side of the Table IV - BSEA Director Reece Erlichman & Hearing Officers

Sponsored by SPaN - Special Needs Advocacy Network

April 19, 2013

.............................................................................

A Note to Parents: If you are embroiled in a dispute with your school district over special education issues, and have given more than passing consideration to requesting a due process hearing, you owe it to yourselves to attend this program!

BSEA Hearing Officers Roundtable

Moderated by

Reece Erlichman, Director
Massachusetts Bureau
of Special Education Appeals

This event is SPaN’s fourth in an annual series unofficially titled “The Same Side of the Table.” The goal of this series is to illustrate common stumbling blocks for Special Education Advocates and brainstorm ways to avoid them.

Having representatives from all corners in one room – to be heard and to listen – can be helpful for improving communication and staying student-focused.

This year’s forum will feature a panel of Hearing Officers and will be moderated by BSEA Director Reece Erlichman.

We’ve asked the panelists to:
  • Share lessons learned from redacted cases involving advocates;
  • Suggest how advocates can consult with families who may need to proceed pro se, including
  • tips on how (if at all) to write an effective hearing request;
  • Provide guidance on how advocates can contribute to the collaborative process despite the adversarial and emotional nature of due process.
This session will not, and may not be recorded.

When:   6:30 - 9:30pm Thursday, May 16, 2013

Where: The Westin Hotel Waltham
                 70 Third Avenue
                 Waltham, MA 02451
