94. IEPs during Covid-19, ft. IEP Lawyers Amanda Selogie & Vickie Brett
“There’s no way to make virtual learning fair for everyone…” Micha said it best but we’re all thinking it right?! Getting your child’s IEP needs met during virtual learning seems nearly impossible. And no one understands the legal battle behind a student’s disability rights quite like Vickie Brett and Amanda Selogie, two special education lawyers who created one of our favorite nonprofits: The Inclusive Education Project.
Let’s face it, there’s only so much learning that can be done through a screen and it’s all too easy for kiddos to regress. And with every school district handling IEP needs so differently, how do we begin to address this huge gap in services? We’re so grateful to have Vickie and Amanda on for an important conversation about IEP anxiety, disability education rights, virtual learning success stories (yes, they do exist!) and when to have your kiddo’s next distance learning IEP (the sooner, the better). Cheering you on, friends!
