This session is eligible for Pennsylvania Act 48 professional education hours.

Like many areas of practice, education continues to be predictable in some ways and unpredictable in others. This session will provide a legislative and legal update to give the broad view of what is happening at the federal, state, and local level in education and special education. The presenter will discuss issues pertaining to funding, IDEA/ESSA, and other legal mandates that apply to special education and speech-language pathology. Some things change, some things really change and some things stay the same. Come hear the latest!
