EPEC 308 October Meeting & Parents as Advocates WorkshopPosted by Mary Geraghty at 10/3/2016
Greetings Parents and Guardians,
As parents, we know how challenging it can be to guide and coach our children along the way, especially during the various hormonal stages in difficult early teens or navigating them through the tough stages of development.
As a father of a Jr. High 6th grade special needs daughter, I must admit, sometimes I feel clueless as to how to help her even though deep inside I'm scrambling for ways to find hope to address her pain. Well, we here at School District 308 EPEC board of Special Education PTO group have met and brainstormed to put together a solid team of Key Note speakers to arm us as parents with various tools we need to guide our child with special needs.
We invite you, moms and dads, to join us this school year for some parent resources from these speakers who will travel into our district to Empower, Engage and Employ us as parents of a special needs child through their academic journey this 2016/2017 school year.
