A Child’s Education: Rights & Responsibilities

May 14, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT

A Child’s Education: Rights & Responsibilities will inform parents of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  The training informs foster and adoptive parents of the processes used to determine eligibility requirements for children with disabilities. In addition, this training will equip participants to ensure children ages three to twenty-one have access to the tools and services necessary to help them succeed in the least restrictive educational environment. 

After completing this training, participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize the 13 types of disabilities covered under IDEA 
  • Utilize knowledge of tools and services to understand their rights and participate in ARC meetings

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.


A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.

If you have any questions about this training or how to register, please email ask@uky.edu or call 859-257-7361.
