How to avoid the 10 biggest mistakes made at IEP meetings

Dec 1, 2017 | Special Education, Special Needs

When you are preparing for what may very well be one of the most important meetings of your life, it’s important to be prepared.

Join Sussan, Greenwald & Wesler Attorney Lenore Boyarin, Esq. on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017. From 6 to 8 p.m. at the Plainfield Library, 800 Park Ave., Plainfield NJ 07060 for a fascinating and informative discussion on how you can be the best advocate for your child when seeking services by avoiding commonly made IEP meeting mistakes.

The program will address misperceptions about how special education works, how to avoid making common mistakes, and how to make more informed decisions when pursuing special education and related services.

As a lawyer and a former certified speech pathologist, Ms. Boyarin is uniquely qualified to advocate on behalf of her clients in forums ranging from the Office of Administrative Law to the federal courts. Ms. Boyarin passionately advocates for the needs of special education students throughout the state, enforcing their rights under both state and federal law. As part of this advocacy, she is a member of the Child and Adolescent Committee of the Brain Injury Association of New Jersey, which created an award-winning program called “Brain Injury Basics,” and is working with the Governor’s Task Force on Traumatic Brain Injury and Special Education.

Ms. Boyarin is admitted to the bar in New Jersey. She earned a Master of Science Degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology at Ithaca College and a Bachelor of Science Degree, cum laude, in Education and Speech Pathology at Brooklyn College.
