Become Your Child’s Advocate panel is an open conversation between professionals in the special education field and parents of children with special needs. The panel is one approach to identify when a child may have a learning disability and the basic steps parents need to follow in order to get the appropriate treatment and educational program. Our purpose is to bring awareness to the most common challenges parents faced while raising a child with special needs and trying to navigate the school and legal systems.
