Help! My Child Keeps Getting Suspended

Recorded: March 11, 2015
Presenter: Yvette Young-DeCosta, The Parents' Place of Maryland

Many times parents of children with disabilities are called because of behavior and discipline issues and are asked to come and pick up their children. Learn under what circumstances this is appropriate and when this qualifies as a suspension. Also learn how to ensure the IEP team is implementing the appropriate behavioral interventions. We discuss: What constitutes an in-school suspension? What is a manifestation/determination meeting? What is a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) and how can it help my child?
