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.

Upcoming Informational Session

Below please find details about an upcoming informational session presented by educational consultant Sarah Birnbaum:

What's the next step after CPSE? Is the mainstream the right setting for my child? If not, what kind of elementary program is the right one? What happens at the Turning 5 meeting, and what are my rights and options? How can I best advocate for my child?

Here is a chance to learn how to answer those questions and get a jump on this stressful process. As always, the presentation will be free of charge.
