Training Announcement: RRMHS (Children) & Educational Rights of Children with Disabilities

Posted on February 19, 2019

The Office of Child and Family Services invites you to attend a training regarding the Rights of Recipients of Mental Health Services Who Are Children in Need of Treatment and the Educational Rights of Children with Disabilities. This training was developed in partnership with Disability Rights Maine (DRM).

The training will review the Rights of Recipients of Mental Health Services Who are Children in Need of Treatment with participants, and discuss real situations. This training will also review obligations of providers to honor children/youth’s rights, and ensure children/youth are aware and understand their rights. Each session will also provide an overview of the rights of students with disabilities in schools, provide updates from recent Supreme Court decisions, address hot topics such as disciplinary removals and access to extracurricular activities, and hopefully allow for dialogue and discussion on related topics not addressed in the presentation.

Each of the dates, times and locations are described below, along with any site-specific information. We look forward to seeing you at one of the trainings.
