Turning Five in the Midst of Change: Kindergarten, Special Education and Your Rights as a Parent

May 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for information and fellowship, and get some crucial questions answered at this FREE session. We’re all in this together.

RSVP for the Zoom seminar here.

If your preschool-aged child is currently receiving special education services or therapy, advocating for an appropriate kindergarten program is critical. For parents of children born in 2017, get a head start on the Turning Five process with Sarah Birnbaum, of New York Special Needs Support, and attorney Abbie Smith of Skyer Law. Abbie and Sarah will be joined by Dr. Laura Tagliareni and Dr. David Salsberg, neuropsychologists who have a practice together called PALS (Pediatric Assessment Learning and Support).

Together, they will provide you with invaluable guidance on:

  • Determining Your Public and Private School Options
  • Finding an Appropriate Kindergarten Program
  • Obtaining Evaluations
  • Understanding Your Child’s Legal Rights
  • Advocating for Your Child at Your Turning 5 IEP Meeting
