Advocacy Workshop Completed

We completed a 5-week course titled “The Language of Advocacy” last night. Learning about everything from assessments and goal-setting to 504/IEP meetings and transition planning, the extended workshop drew parents, teachers and service providers alike. It was presented by Danielle Wiltchik of Special Needs OC. Danielle has a wealth of experience in the field and her accessibility to all students during the 5-week course was unparalleled.
