Navigating Support Services for School-Aged Children in DC | Tuesdays, April 13 - 27 | 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm (ET) | Online via Zoom | Registration is required.
This interactive three-part series is for DC families of school-aged children (ages 4-12) who suspect that their child might benefit from learning and/or behavioral supports. We will discuss how to identify developmental red flags, what rights you have in terms of accessing support, how to obtain an evaluation through both public and private channels, what the evaluation process actually looks like, and how to use your evaluation results to acquire support services, including through the DC public school system. Led by experts in the fields of neuropsychological assessments and education law and advocacy, each part of the series will include a formal presentation followed by lots of time for questions and discussion.

Presenters: Led by Maria Blaeuer, Director of Programs and Outreach at Advocates for Justice and Education (AJE) and Lauren Siegel, Psy.D, Director of Clinical Services at the Kingsbury Wellness & Learning Group

Participants are encouraged to stay on Zoom for an additional half-hour after the 60-minute class to chat and catch up with their friends. We will offer different discussion topics each week.
