Greetings everyone! I would like to pass along some information regarding FREE training workshops to parents, local support groups, schools, churches and other organizations in the Houston, TX area. These trainings are designed to help parents (and others) gain the information they need to increase their advocacy skills. Trainings include, but are not limited to, “Getting to Know My Child Packet,” “Organizing Your Child’s File,” “Special Education 101,” “How to Get the Most Out of Your Child’s ARD Meeting,” “Obtaining One-to-One Services” and “Transitioning From ECI to Pre-School and Kindergarten.” Trainings can be tailored to meet your needs. Also, additional trainings will be added in the future.
These trainings are presented by Special Education Advocate, Samantha Davis, who is located in Pearland, TX. For additional information, please visit http://www.davis-advocates.com.
For those individuals, living in the state of Texas, who can not afford an advocate or an attorney, the following organizations may be able to assist you:
