PACER Videos

PACER has developed two new videos that parents can access on PACER's website. "Special Education: What Do I Need To Know?" is a 37-minute audio/video overview of special education created to help parents of children with disabilities understand what special education is, how a child might begin in special education, how to resolve disagreements, and what role parents play. The presentation, also translated into Hmong, is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education. A new 30-minute video call "Transition Planning for Children with Disabilities" gives a breif overview of the transition planning process for parents and families of children with disabilities. Find both of the new presentations at PACER's Special Education Rights - (Parents Helping Parents) website page. PACER Center
