When contacted for support and assistance, FIN can provide families with a variety of information and resources and may, upon request, contact the district’s exceptional student education (ESE) office or school to discuss concerns on behalf of the family.
Family concerns and needs are always carefully considered as part of FIN’s planning and problem-solving with districts and/or schools.
While FIN facilitators do not attend IEP meetings, they can provide information about the following: effective inclusive practices, family-school collaboration and communication, opportunities for networking with other families, and ways to access local resources and support. For information about your child’s educational program or Individual Education Plan (IEP), please contact your child’s teacher or school administrator.
Visit the Florida Inclusion Network website for a variety of resources available for families.
For more information, please contact your Regional FIN Facilitator, Erin Perman at Erin.Perman@stlucieschools.org or email@example.com.
