Call for Speakers for the 2011-12 meeting season

Many of you who read my blog have met me at one of the PS 163 cafe meetings over the past 2 years. We have had some really amazing speakers this past school year, and in an effort to outdo myself I am putting out a notice for some of the meeting topics that could benefit from a couple more people.

Right now I am looking for:

1) Parents of special needs children who a) are entering a special needs NYC approved private elementary, middle or high school, or b) have a special needs child who has transitioned from a public school to a private school setting, or c) have a special needs child who resides in a CTT or contained pubic school classroom setting in grades 1-12 who would be willing to sit in a round table discussion about their experience with the school, the search for the right school, the admission process, and answer questions from other parents.

2) Agencies or individuals who provide an extracurricular service to the special needs population, such as sports, music, art, a social skills group, a mentoring program, tutoring, etc.

3) Financial planners or consultants with experience in planning for the future financial needs of families with special needs members.

4) Special needs people with a unique talent in music, art, cooking, athletics, or anything you’d like to mention!

If interested, please email me at msearfoorce@gmail.com with your information so I can fill in a few spots for next year’s meetings. I will post more details regarding each meeting as dates and information becomes available. Also keep an eye out for the post about our Summer group’s first meeting!
