Working with Outside Experts

The Special Education Department of the Lexington Public Schools in collaboration with the Lexington Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is offering a presentation by Dr. Erik von Hahn, MD, a practicing developmental-behavioral pediatrician at Tufts Medical Center* along with a discussion with Ellen Sugita, Director of Special Education.  The topic will focus on independent/outside evaluations. Among other related topics, the talk will cover the following:
•    Information on finding a qualified evaluator
•    What and how to communicate with the evaluator and the district
•    District responsibility and process

  
What is the SEPTA?
The Lexington Special Education Parent Teacher Association was developed in 2012 by the Lexington SEPAC executive committee.  This organization gives the SEPAC a 501(c) 3 status to better manage funds and also gives the PAC a seat at the PTA table.  We expect that this participation will be another way for the PAC to communicate special education topics and needs in the LPS community.
 
What is the SEPAC?
The Special Education Parent Advisory Council is a mandated organization under the current Massachusetts Special Education Regulations and is tasked with "advising the district on matter that pertain to the education and safety of students with disabilities; meeting regularly with school officials to participate in the planning, development, and evaluation of the school district's special education programs"
