In this session, we’ll go over basic steps and tips to advocate for your child or youth with disabilities in K-12 education. I’ll explain their rights and your rights as a parent/guardian, and I’ll share the specific guidance to school Districts from the Ministry of Education during Covid-19.

You will learn:
