Replicating a Special Education Advocacy Training: Lessons Learned
Wednesday, October 23rd 1:00 PM EDT
In this webinar, we will describe lessons learned in replicating a special education advocacy training. Specifically, we will describe the Volunteer Advocacy Project (VAP), a special education advocacy training. We will review the research about the VAP. Then, we will discuss the supports offered to agencies to replicate the VAP. The Community Inclusion and Development Alliance (CIDA) will then discuss their replication of the VAP for Korean families of children with disabilities.
