June Parent Training

Navigating the Transition to School: Understanding IEP Basics

Navigating your child’s transition to school may invoke a slew of emotions from feeling excited and hopeful to a bit nervous and overwhelmed, especially if you are new to the IEP process. Join Cornerstone’s training team as we guide families and caregivers through how this process is started, what to expect leading up to your child’s first case conference, navigating the IEP process itself, and Cornerstone’s role in helping to transition your child and support you through the process. Families and caregivers will also be provided insights into accommodations that may be appropriate for their child to advocate for in the IEP process, as well as other tools to assist in parental advocacy. We look forward to sharing this time and space with you as we navigate this important topic!

You can RSVP by emailing Stephanie Dille-Huggins at sdille@cornerstoneautismcenter.com or by sending the RSVP slip back in from your child’s backpack. We look forward to hearing from you!

Who or what inspires you?

My son, Victor, inspires me. He was diagnosed with autism in 2021. When he was first diagnosed, he was nonverbal, but in the last year, he has made great progress in speaking and is fast developing new skills. He is truly an inspiration.

What goals have you accomplished since coming to Cornerstone? Or what are some goals that are currently in progress?

One of my main goals when coming to Cornerstone was to completely change my career path so that I could learn new skills and be part of a company that helps to improve the lives of children with autism.

Do you have a favorite quote?

Autism is not a disability, it’s a different ability.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Cornerstone?

To see how children with autism see the world in a different way than we do. When I walk through the center, I enjoy hearing the positive energy from the therapists and how excited the kiddo’s are to be learning and having fun.

What’s your favorite memory so far here at Cornerstone?

Attending the family day at Victory Field and getting to meet the employees and their families from all of the Cornerstone center locations.

Thank you to our staff for Maximizing Those Who Struggle,

Embracing Those Who Love and Fulfilling Those Who Serve.
