Howard Mendelson is a certified mediator with years of experience mediating conflicts between families and school districts in New Jersey. He has represented clients in several areas of law as a managing partner with Davis & Mendelson, L.L.C.
The title of the NBI seminar that Mr. Mendelson will be teaching is “IEPs and 504 Plans: A Legal Compliance Guide.” It will be a two-day practical course offered at the National Business Institute in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
The seminar will provide students with a wealth of information about this complicated area of law. Attendees can expect to receive essential tips for crafting an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which often requires a very detailed understanding of education law and entails going through a complex process. Additionally, attendees at the Cherry Hill NJ seminar will learn how to correctly determine whether a child is eligible for an IEP and how to create an IEP that is legally defensible by both the student and the school. Beyond that, the seminar will provide you with the knowledge needed to avoid compliance mistakes when it comes to IEPs and 504 plans.
Mr. Mendelson will be addressing a number of specific topics, including:
· The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Special Education
· Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Policy Letters
· Recent Updates to NJ State Law on IEPs
· The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Progress Monitoring
A poorly crafted IEP could be challenged and rejected, especially if it is not properly planned and executed. You do not want this to happen to your clients, which is why the NBI seminar could prove critical to your future practice in this area of law. It is imperative that you have a deep understanding of the nuances and procedures involved in NJ education law so that you can be a strong advocate for your clients and minimize any potential legal issues that may arise.
