What’s the difference between an IEP and a 504? What does a neuropsychologist do, exactly? When a parent asks you if their child has a learning disability, where do you begin?
These questions and more will be addressed at our upcoming conference “Learning the School Alphabet: IDEA, SST, IEP” at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, Saturday, April 29 from 8:30 to noon. Starting with an introductory lecture by child behavior and development specialist Dr. Renee Wachtel, the meeting will include a panel of experts and small group discussion sessions. Panelists include a school nurse, a neuropsychologist, a special education attorney, an educational advocate and a school board member.
This special presentation is a collaboration among the AAP Chapter School Health committee, Child Behavior and Development committee, and Continuing Medical Education committee with support from the Alameda County Public Health Department.
And, back by popular demand, don’t forget to save the date – Saturday, December 2 – for our second annual “Pediatric Puzzles” event. Our committee is actively enlisting potential speakers and topics for another terrific in-person learning opportunity. As before, we will emphasize audience-response, interactive sessions all day.
