As a parent, you know your child best, and you know when something isn't right. What to do when your toddler isn't meeting normal developmental milestones, or when your child is struggling in a school setting? It can feel overwhelming, but an action plan can help minimize stress and demystify the special education process. Join us for a special webinar with our panel of Clinical Neuropsychologist, Dr. David Salsberg, Education Attorneys, Alexandra Hindes and Jenna Pantel, and Parents League Special Needs Advisors, Chantal Aflalo and Laura Mazzaro, who will answer questions and provide guidance and information to help you launch your child on the path to success. This event kicks off our 4-day Special Needs School Virtual Fair beginning, February 2, 2021.
In order to answer as many questions as we can during the webinar, please submit your questions in advance here. We will make every effort to answer them during the event.
