This 3-hour session will be an in-depth look at how parents can get the processes started for special education evaluation if their school system has not. Discussions will include referrals before entering kindergarten, but also further into school as well. Presenters will walk through the amount of time each part of the process may take, best practices for parents to make sure the school keeps moving forward in their evaluations, how to make sure all the evaluations the parent thinks are appropriate occur, what is required to be eligible, services that may be available, what the delivery of services may look like, and what an actual IEP or 504 plan should look like as well. A portion of the session will be working through real-life scenarios to determine how to navigate the processes and roadblocks that can occur.

Stigma is defined as a set of negative beliefs that a group or society holds about a topic or group of people. The World Health Organization has classified stigma as having a detrimental effect on the treatment of individuals and is a huge barrier to recovery. Public attitudes about various stigmatizing conditions indicate that individuals with a substance use disorder are viewed more negatively than individuals with a mental health disorder. This stigma promotes the vicious cycle that is embedded in the disease of substance use disorder. In the state of Alabama, stigma presents as a barrier to seeking treatment and directly affects the way an individual views themselves. The goal of this summit is to address stigma, as it relates to individuals with a substance use disorder, by dispelling myths, educating on evidence-based practices, and bringing awareness to this public health issue.
