If your preschool-aged child is currently receiving special education services or therapy, advocating for an appropriate kindergarten program is critical.

This free information session 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
