What is the role of the afterschool program to provide for children with special needs? Who is responsible for paying for services? Who is required to follow the Individual Education Plan (IEP)? 

Mary Ciccone from NJ Protection and Advocacy will join us in a discussion of the rights of children with special needs and the responsibilities of afterschool programs. Starting with the legal definitions of IDEA*, ADA*, 504* and LAD*, we will discuss how these laws apply to afterschool programs depending on the sponsoring organization and location of the program. Afterschool providers are invited to attend this dialogue with the MAP Team.
