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.

Special Education Workshop at Ohel Simcha in New Jersey

I will be presenting a special education workshop about navigating the legal process and how to get the services that your child needs on August 24, 2011 in New Jersey (see below).  Topics to be discussed include a parent's rights under the IDEA and other applicable laws; how to go about dealing with your school system to obtain tutoring, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech services as well as tuition funding; and what legal action to pursue when interactions with the school district have reached an impasse.

Long Branch, NJ 07740
When: Wednesday, August 24th at 1:00 pm
