Program Development Grant Cycle 39

Regional Office: Sequoia

Organization Name: * Next Step Vocational Education and Transition Center

Dollar Amount of Proposal: $19,500

Goal Area Proposed: *Self-Advocacy

Proposal Narrative: This program is unique in that it will provide extensive training and support to parents and guardians of children and young adults with special needs to learn the skills necessary for special education advocacy so that they may assist families with children whom are served under an IEP. Although we will serve all families, they are especially interested in helping significant populations with the least parent turnout for their children’s Individualized Educational Plan. Parents who are second language learners, of poverty level and who were African American, Hispanic or Asian had the lowest parent meeting attendance of all subgroups. Advocates will assist all parents in IEP planning, meeting preparation as well as provide linkages to various community resources for additional support.

*Pending successful completion of the protest period.
