The American Language Program (ALP) Winter Conference is a professional development event for practicing language educators, researchers, and graduate and doctoral students aimed at enriching their pedagogical practice in teaching. Although primarily focused on English as a Second Language (ESL/TESOL/ELT) education in academic settings, educators teaching other languages or in other educational contexts may find the presentations relevant and applicable to their teaching. The title for the 2018 conference is Teaching Learners How to Learn; previous years’ conferences have focused on vocabulary (2018), pronunciation pedagogy (2017), critical thinking in language teaching and learning (2016), and writing (2015).

This training provides an overview of Special Education laws and the rights of parents. The training goes over the entire special education process from referral for special education services through the creation of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Participants will learn how to read IEPs by reviewing sections of sample IEPs. Participants will strengthen their ability to advocate for parents and students when the parent disagrees with the student’s school on special education matters.
