New Mission

New Mission


My mission is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues.

I would like to visit and observe different types of schools that have proven records of success, wherever those schools may be. I would like to meet with school directors and administrators, government officials, leaders in the business world, and others who are responsible for implementing education systems or otherwise connected to education to learn more about how education is being addressed in their communities.

If you know of any remarkable schools in other parts of the world (especially special needs schools), please let me know about them. If you know of any education experts who are engaged in remarkable work in this field, please introduce me to them.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas regarding the above. Read more about my mission here.

Yachad Family Shabbaton at Hudson Valley Resort - May 13-15, 2011

I was invited to speak at the 25th Annual Yachad Family Shabbaton this past weekend at the Hudson Valley Resort in Kerhonkson, New York.  Yachad is a national Jewish organization dedicated to addressing the needs of all individuals with disabilities and including them in the Jewish community.  The event, which this year attracted more guests than ever in the past, offered workshops on different topics with respect to individuals with special needs such as sensory integration, social skills deficits, parenting, residential programs, executive functioning skills, autism, Down Syndrome, and two sessions on special education law presented by this firm.  The weekend also offered parents opportunities to attend support groups with similarly situated parents and to participate in various other sessions and activities.
