Education as a Human Right
You will learn:
-Your child’s rights
-Legal advocacy do’s and don’ts for parents of children with special needs
You know your child best. But how well do you know the school system? Or the legal system defining your child’s educational rights? This workshop will help give you a clearer understanding of your child’s right to access education along with information about how you can enforce those rights when things go sideways, as they often do.
