Lessons Learned While Becoming a Parent Advocate
April 25, 2016, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at Washtenaw Intermediate School District. FREE

Attorney Jessica Kelly will tell her story of advocating for her own child with dyslexia, and going on to be trained as a professional lay advocate. She will share tips and advice that will help parents get the most appropriate services for their children at all stages from evaluation through negotiating an IEP. In the face of limited public school staff and tight budgets, this information is invaluable to all individuals.
