CASA to CASA | Tips for Educational Advocacy
Time & Location
About the event
What do you need to know to be an effective advocate for children at school? Join us for a conversation with an expert! We'll be joined by Dr. Jen Newton of Ohio University to share best practices for advocacy when it comes to the unique educational needs of the children you serve.
From Dr. Newton: Please join us for "Special Education Matters" where we will learn about the law that guides the system of services and supports for students. We'll talk about what is a "disability" at school and the process through which children can access the supports they need to be successful. We’ll distinguish between the letter of the law vs the spirit of the law and then, finally, we'll get into your questions, concerns, challenges with and supporting children who have support needs at school.
