New Mission

New Mission

My idea is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. I’d like to see different successful schools, wherever they may be, up close. I’d like to sit down with directors and administrators. I’d like to speak with government officials who keep a pulse on the education affairs of their communities. I want to learn more about education around the globe through speaking with locals, seeing the schools, and shaking hands with the people responsible for implementing the systems. If you know of any outstanding (public or private) special needs schools in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them. If you know any education experts from around the world, I’d love to be introduced to them. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas. Read more about my mission.

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
