Special Ed Law – Learn the law and how to access the services available, so you can be the best advocate for your child. Your Rights– They’re your child’s rights! Learn how to protect them! Educate yourself– Allow us to translate the acronym ridden and mystical world of the DOE and IEP development into straight talk. Parenting Tips – Learn strategies to implement in your home that will support your child’s learning, independence and behavioral development. Discover the path to your child’s success!
