Parent Ed Night

Special Education Advocacy: What Parents Need to Know!c131c23b 800f 4911 8e0a 46f96be87bf0

Monday, October 16, 2017
Walter R. Sundling Junior High School
1100 N. Smith Street, Palatine, IL 60067
7:00 - 8:30 pm

Come to this free workshop that is open to anyone in the local community. Special Education can be a confusing "world". This session will break down what parents need to know to be an active, educated member of your child's team. We will discuss what special education is, who it serves, and touch on evaluations, IEP meetings, what you are entitled to and all those acronyms everyone is using. Come learn from Attorney Matt Cohen about advocating for your child. Matt Cohen, of Matt Cohen and Associates LLC, concentrates on representation of children and families in special education and discipline disputes with public schools and has extensive experience in mental health and confidentiality law, Mr. Cohen frequently litigates special education matters in the federal courts, and has represented hundreds of families in special education disputes. He is the former President of National CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder), is a current board member of COPAA (Council on Parent Attorneys and Advocates), and has chaired the Illinois Attorney General's Committee on Special Education for many years.

What to do with those books you no longer read???44d18957 1705 4f38 9415 1e1e145d4ec7

The Paperback Book Exchange (for 1-6th grade) is coming Wednesday, October 18th as part of the Winston PTA Environmental Ed committee. Finish reading those summer books so you can exchange them for some new ones!

This event will regularly take place the third Wednesday of each month on the stage during lunch hours. Student helpers will come to the classrooms in the morning and give students a coupon for every book they bring to exchange. Books should be paperbacks 1st grade level and up - no picture books, please. Then, the coupons get brought to lunch (after eating and cleaning up) to exchange for new books! We have a great selection, so everyone should check it out!
