Georgia IEP Facilitation Program

I attended a great meeting today with attorneys in the special needs field and a rep from the Georgia Department of Education, discussing the soon to be implemented Facilitated IEP program. They are currently seeking input from professionals and parents, and plan to roll out a pilot program in the fall of 2016. Hopefully this will be a useful tool for us parents to use in order to advocate for our children without going down the dreaded due process route!

For more information on the IEP Facilitation program being used in other states, and a helpful video, click HERE.

10 Ways to Wear a Scarf!

For everyone who received scarves for Christmas.....

Check out this video showing 10 Ways to Wear a Scarf, put on by the ladies of the NYC Design Studio! It's great because it doesn't just give you pictures of the styles, they actually show you (quickly, thank goodness) how to get these looking good so you don't have to guess! I hope it's helpful, let me know what you think!!
