Karin Fisher, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Dept. of Elementary and Special Education, presented alongside Jeannine Brinkley, executive director of the PEAL Center, and Cassandra Willis, a doctoral candidate at Virginia Commonwealth University at the 2018 TASH Conference in Portland, OR on November 28-30. TASH is a nonprofit disability advocacy organization. The presentation, titled “Endrew F. parent Toolkit,” addressed the details of the Endrew F. Supreme Court Case, a case in which the United States Supreme Court addressed the definition of “appropriate” in what constitutes a free and appropriate education. The parent toolkit created by Fisher, Brinkley and Willis was disseminated to parents all over the nation.

As a result of her research on the impacts of the Endrew F. Supreme Court Case, Fisher was also invited by the director of the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) at the University of Central Florida to present a webinar on the case. She and her colleague Barbara Ransom, Esq., a special education attorney, presented the webinar that can be found on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/E2QlOlwrGx8
