ARC Meetings & IEPs: The Basics will help foster and adoptive parents understand the process of an ARC Meeting and gain a better perspective of what an IEP will look like. It offers strategies and ideas to help parents be prepared the ARC meetings. This training also offers sample IEP goals and objectives to give foster and adoptive parents some deeper understanding of what these will look like when an IEP is written for the child in their home. 

After completing this training, participants will be able to:  

  • Prepare for and participate in ARC meetings 
  • Understand IEP goals and objectives to collaborate with school personnel in writing a child’s IEP 

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.
