RTI, 504, IEP: What’s the Difference?

July 24, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Please join the Family Resource Network and Starbridge, Inc. for our upcoming workshop:
RTI, 504, IEP: What’s the Difference?

When a child qualifies for special education services, federal law requires the development of a document called an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Some students may not qualify for an IEP, but may receive accommodations and modifications from a 504 Plan or may receive support through Response to Intervention (RTI).

This workshop will explain the process for receiving supports and services through general and/or special education.

  • Understand the differences between building level (or general education) services and special education services
  • Understand the processes and steps for each of these systems

About our Speaker: Kara Georgi is the Parent Education Specialist for Starbridge Parent Training and Information Center. She offers support and information for families and professionals navigating the special education system in Cayuga, Tompkins, Onondaga, Cortland, Broome, Madison, Chenango, Otsego and Delaware Counties.
