“I REALIZED I WAS NOT ALONE”
I attended my first SPED*NET presentation when one of my children began struggling in school, and I was hooked from then on. The presenter was not only knowledgeable about the topic but also very instructive, giving the audience of parents and caregivers concrete next
steps to implement.
As my children were diagnosed with “an alphabet soup” of learning disabilities in the following years,
it was empowering to learn more about the disabilities, the available therapies and programs, as well as how to navigate the public school special education system. It was also encouraging to meet and receive support from other parents facing the same struggles.
My children are now grown, and certainly the knowledge I gained from each SPED*NET talk gave me the tools to help them become the productive adults they now are.”
