Support your child's success in school!

September 26 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
We’ll start the series with ways we can improve communication skills and teamwork. We’ll also discuss school-based options to support your kids’ educational success.

October 3 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
CSE? IEP? What do those mean and how can they help? What do you do when it’s a struggle to get your child to school? Join us for answers and guidance.

October 10 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
Schools offer a range of supports and services. Learn what those are, how to identify your child’s goals and hopes for the future, and how to plan for life after high school.

October 17 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
We’ll discuss ways to support your child when they struggle with challenging behaviors, as well as effective advocacy and teamwork.

November 7 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
Let’s discuss how to take care of you, as well as how to take care of your child if and when bullying becomes an issue at school.

November 14 ~ 5:00-8:00pm
Share your child’s vision with your classmates and celebrate your graduation!

Dinner will be provided each night, beginning at 4:30pm.
