Getting Started with Special Education
So. Many. Questions!
Helping families who are new to the special education world comes with answering a ton of questions. From how to get the ball rolling to what happens if the parents disagree with the school's evaluation, I am happy to help educate parents about the process.
I recently taught a free online six-session bootcamp for parents to learn their rights regarding their child with special needs. I had the forethought to record these sessions, so I will be posting them here. Please like, share, and spread the word to other parents who need to know!
