Weinfeld Education Group hopes you and your family are healthy and staying safe while we go through this unprecedented time. We wanted to be sure you were aware of two new services WEG is offering.
1. Virtual Advocacy
WEG will review and analyze the distance learning program and compare it to your student's current IEP or 504 Plan to ensure they are able to access the curriculum and assignments in all subjects.
As each student’s individualized plan is adapted for distance learning, their existing IEP or 504 Plan will require changes, either by a parentally signed amendment without a meeting, or through some type of virtual meeting. We anticipate that the newly amended IEPs and 504 Plans will reflect changes in direct service hours, interventions, related services, accommodations, supplementary aids, and assistive technology tools and services. WEG is offering a special price on this virtual consultation during this current crisis.
2. Parent/Guardian Coaching
WEG analyzes distance learning lessons and materials that students are expected to complete. WEG will assist you to make appropriate accommodations in the lessons so your student can access the curriculum. This ongoing service allows you to access your WEG advocate and gain help in effectively teaching your student. WEG will work with you to ensure the assignments are accessible, you are also coached on gathering important and relevant data on your student’s present levels. This data will help you communicate effectively with school staff to ensure the school is making any needed and necessary changes in supports to your student.
WEG will also help you advocate for compensatory services that may be necessary due to services that are not provided during distance learning.
If you are interested, please begin by calling the WEG office at 301.681.6233 or you can fill out a contact form on our website.
