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.

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.
