Do you have a child who needs extra support at school? Wondering how to get your child what they need to survive and thrive in the system? Exhausted and unsure where to go for help? Tired of waiting for the school system to finally get that assessment or write that IEP? Join us for a special one-day conference on these topics!
Whether you’ve got a confirmed diagnosis or you have a child who seems stuck in the system, join us for inspiration as well as practical tips and techniques. You’ll learn what you can expect for your child and how the system operates, how to advocate effectively, and what to do if your child isn’t getting what they need, while turning around relationships with school staff and saving your sanity. Hear from real parents who’ve been through grueling experiences and managed to re-emerge with tools and supports for their children, while finding the right fit in the BC system. You’ll also find a community of parents who really get your experience and can help you feel less isolated.
