Trainings and Workshops

We offer trainings through in-person workshops and teleconferences and webinars throughout the year. These are free workshops to parents and professionals.  They provide information, resources and hands-on activities to assist participants in developing new skills and increasing their knowledge of the child’s educational rights.  Our goal is to help parents learn how to advocate for their own child.  All are welcome to attend. If you would like us to present a workshop to your school or group give us a call to discuss our offerings.

One parent who attended our trainings wrote in an evaluation “It was very empowering. Thank you for the great service you provide to us overwhelmed parents.  It is very appreciated!!”

Another wrote, “Thank you for helping me. Because of your efforts I am stronger and know my rights.”
