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.

Dr. Lauren Tobing-Puente, licensed psychologist, is offering a free video workshop for parents/caregivers tonight from 7:00pm-8:30pm called Navigating IEPs and Distance Learning During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The workshop will provide strategies and time for general Q&A geared toward families of children with special needs who are experiencing enormous strain as a result of the current situation.

In particular, the following topics will be discussed:
  • Strategies for distance learning (including related services) for children with IEPs
  • The IEP process during the pandemic and how schools are proceeding with applications and placements
  • Strategies for self-care, time management, and balancing school and family life during the pandemic. 
I am enclosing a flyer for parents/caregivers who may be interested:
