CLICK HERE to find out how the strike is affecting NYC special needs families as well as for information about how your child can get free yellow cab service to school if they are wheelchair bound. CLICK HERE to get the latest update on the strike itself – sounds like some special needs buses went back on the road today with replacement drivers, and that there will be some further announcement by Union 1181 tomorrow at 10:30 (hopefully that this madness is coming to an end).
Winter is the time to think about summer camp. Camps open registration in the next few weeks, and space and financial assistance is limited.
You can meet experts from over 70 summer programs serving children and teens with special needs at the Special Camp Fair TODAY, from 11 AM to 3 PM, at Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Manhattan (see map below). Camp Fair is a “come as long as you want to” event. Come whenever you can and stay as long as you need to. Read more…
