Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2004 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 24 June 2004) . . Page.. 2774 ..

Formal training for parents to participate in the development of ILPs has not been held. Most schools host information sessions in which school executives provide assistance and advice to parents and carers with regard to their participation in the development of ILPs. In addition, the department conducts parent information sessions to assist parents in developing an understanding of the issues for participating in their child’s educational program and ILP.

ILP training sessions will be offered to parents and carers at the end of 2004 to coincide with the student planning cycle. Training will be free of charge and held at a central location such as the Centre for Teaching and Learning in Stirling or the Special Education Resource Centre in Weston. The training sessions will be publicised through community organisations and schools.
