Educational Advocacy

I taught a workshop in the durum region on Saturday and came across a form that was functioning as an IPO see statement of decision that literally had no space for a list of strengths and needs as it is mandated in the regulations provincially. I’m sure at the end of the day there is an explanation for this but it is curious that a board generated Form would miss this.

For the record, for an IPRC to be an I PRC there has to be a discussion of strengths and needs and the statement of decision given to the parent must include a list of strengths and needs, the rationale being that how could a parent agree to a placement or exceptionality if there was not sufficient clarity of their child’s strengths and needs.
