We are proud to once again be able to offer the Parent Leadership Program – a comprehensive series of trainings that includes valuable information to help you understand supports and services for children and young adults with learning differences and disabilities and skill building to become an effective leader in your child’s life, school and community.

In depth information will be provided about:

  • special education
  • graduation requirements
  • preparing for life in the real world after high school
  • conflict resolution
  • ways to advocate effectively

Participants must complete approved independent learning requirements and attend 2 in person sessions conveniently scheduled for Saturdays:

April 28th and June 2nd from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
