BC Parents of Children With Special Needs – Action for Equitable Access to Education (BCEdAccess) are presenting a full day workshop for special ed parents.

Featuring a Key Note Address by Rick Moore!

Rick Moore is a North Vancouver father who won a landmark court case that ruled the North Vancouver School District discriminated against his dyslexic son. At the heart of the case was what responsibility the school system bears to help children with special needs succeed. Rick and his family spent fifteen (15!) years going through legal process in order to set this important precedent.

Other speakers and workshop topics will include:

Lindsay Waddell, Senior Associate at Moore Edgar Lyster – “practical information about human rights claims”

Erika Cedillo and Pepe Duarté – “different personality types and effective ways to communicate with your child’s team”

Theresa Grech, Mental Health Expert

A Parent Panel discussion including Bobbi Taylor, Nicole Kaler, Jodie Wickens and Suzanne Perrault

There is plenty of free parking at the Pacific Autism Family Network in Richmond. Lunch and materials are included in the price. Please contact the organizer with any questions or concerns about this event.

Whether your child has 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.  Hear from experts and 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.

Information will be updated regularly. Please follow us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Public-BC-Parents-of-Students-wSpecial-Needs-Equitable-Access-to-Education-497367153721687/
