The more parents and professionals know about resources, the better they are to help their child and the families that they work with. Join us as we highlight two amazing and free resources that are available to families who have children with disabilities in the state of Illinois. Our first resource we will be highlighting is Family Matters Parent Training & Information Center. Family Matters assist parents of children with disabilities to be informed participants in the special education process. They also assist students with disabilities to understand their rights and responsibilities. The second resource we will be highlighting is The Arc of Illinois. The Arc will be discussing “What families of young children need to know about PUNS”, the process, what to do while waiting to be selected and consider steps to take following a PUNS selection. Great information all families need to know and understand! This training is intended for families who have a child with a disability ages 3, 4, or 5. No credit will be issued. Professionals are welcome to attend in order to support the families they work with.
Note: Approximately three weeks before the webinar, registrants will receive an email to confirm receipt of their registration request and important instructions that should be viewed prior to the day of the session.
