The week-long Symposium begins on Sunday evening with a dinner and keynote address by the newly appoint head of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and concludes on Friday with the National Case Law Update (lunch included). Eight, all new, litigation “hot topics” (three hours each) are offered Monday through Thursday to registrants who choose the advanced section. An added option for attorneys (only) this year is a one-hour Ethics session over lunch (included) on Wednesday. For those registrants new to special education law, the basic section offers foundation knowledge in three-hour sessions: IDEA overview/legal terminology, child find/eligibility, free appropriate public education (FAPE), least restrictive environment (LRE), discipline, remedies, Pennsylvania regulations, and Section 504.
