  IDEA And The Classroom Teacher Webinar #14
IDEA And The Classroom Teacher Webinar  With the passage of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004) to replace Public Law 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act), the role of classroom teachers has changed dramatically. Teachers now have to work within the new law and with an alphabet soup of mandates such as:

Janet Bellizia, the author of this webinar, has created this program to help teachers understand what IDEA means for educators, and the mandate’s function within their classrooms.

IDEA issues addressed include:
• IDEA mandates
• IDEA eligibility
• Understanding the IEP process
• Specialized programs to help students make effective progress
• The referral process
• Evaluations
• Placement

What will this webinar offer you?
• A baseline understanding of IDEA
• A journey through the IEP process
• Tips on being proactive
• Instructional strategies to help students gain access to the general curriculum

If you have asked yourself any of the following questions, this webinar is for you.
• What are my obligations to my students under IDEA?
• Are there classroom strategies that can help the student in the regular classroom?
• How can I advocate for my special needs student?
• How can I actively participate in the IEP process?

About the presenter: Janet Bellizia received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lowell State Teachers College and a Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in Special Education from Boston State Teachers College.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Ms. Bellizia served as a member and Vice Chair for the Massachusetts Teachers Association Special Education Committee. She was part of a group of educators from around the country to go to Washington, D.C. to work on the rules and regulations for Public Law 94-142.

During her teaching career in Woburn MA, Ms. Bellizia taught first grade for eighteen years and kindergarten for seventeen years. Her classes were always typical and special needs students. While teaching in Woburn, she worked with Dr. Kathleen Quill, autism specialist and author of several books on autism.

Although retired, Ms. Bellizia continues to broaden her knowledge. She recently completed an advocacy course at the Federation for Children with Special Needs.
