Speaker: Ruth Landsman on Special Education
SPECIAL PARENTS OF EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN (SPEC), a group founded and run by parents of children with special needs, invites you to come and share with other parents the triumphs and challenges of raising a child with special needs. SPEC’s purpose is to provide support and information. We meet monthly during the school year and welcome parents and caregivers of children of all ages and types of needs. We welcome back the many folks who continue to attend, and we love newcomers!
Ruth Landsman is director and founding member of the Parents Exchange, an information, referral and advocacy organization. She has two decades of experience advocating for the rights of children to special education, and more than two decades as the parent of a child with special needs. Please join us and bring your questions about your child’s access to education, IEP, ESY, and all those other bewildering terms!
No RSVP is necessary. Parking is available at the lot behind Top of the Hill Plaza, entrance on Bethlehem Pike. The Library is close to the terminus of the 23, L and 94 buses and the final stops of the R8 and R7 train lines. Sorry, there is no child care at the meetings.
