The Burlington SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) is excited to welcome Allan Blume to our next PAC meeting, tomorrow night, October 25th.

Allan is a retired associate professor of practice formerly of Simmons College, Boston, and a current adjunct faculty member at Elms College, Chicopee. He taught courses that focused on laws and regulations of special education, IEP development, transition, and inclusion.

He continues to consult to schools throughout Massachusetts regarding topics such as federal and state special education regulations, writing and implementing individualized education programs, disability awareness, special education process, inclusion, eligibility, Section 504, as well as assisting school districts with the creation and editing of their District Curriculum Accommodation Plans.

Over the past few years, Allan has been providing extensive consultation to Burlington Public Schools at all levels.

In his presentation to the PAC, he will talk about the work he has done in Burlington and will provide participants with insight into the IEP process, strategies he has provided for effective IEP writing and what parents might expect to see in their son or daughter’s IEP.
