Event Registration

Whether your child has long been receiving Early Intervention therapies and has a diagnosed disability or if their delays are only just now being identified, you may be wondering: How do I even approach finding the right preschool program for my special needs child? From evaluations and school tours, to IEP meetings and due process appeals, special education law veteran Regina Skyer will explain your child’s right to receive a free, appropriate public education.
 
Regina Skyer became an attorney for the sole purpose of representing special needs children and their families after a 15-year career as a social worker and school administrator.
