EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY IN YOUR CHILD'S

SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY

ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR Monday, February 23rd, 2015 WILL BE HELD ON Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 from 6:30 - 8:30 PM

Thayer Public Library,
798 Washington St., Braintree

Children and young adults with special needs and disabilities need parents and guardians who are effective advocates. The inclusion of your child in school and the community is his/her right under IDEA, Section 504, ADA and MA Special Education Law (Chapter 766). Tere Ramos is a parent and staff attorney and Equal Justice Fellow at the Disability Law Center. Ms. Ramos will present an overview of how parents and guardians can obtain the skills for effective advocacy. Disability rights to access go well beyond the IEP and the school system and they can be used to allow inclusion in the community, from town programs to private organizations.
