IMPORTANT! Location change for “How to Survive Turning 5” workshop, October 19th

Due to a booking error by the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, the venue for our kindergarten transition workshop, co-sponsored by Music Therapy at BCM, on October 19th, 7-9pm has changed.

NEW LOCATION: Congregation Beth Elohim’s Social Hall, 274 Garfield Place (Brooklyn)

Space is limited. So please RSVP if you have not already done so.

Workshop Description:

The Kindergarten transition process is undeniably daunting for families of special needs children—and New York City’s massive bureaucracy doesn’t make it any easier.

A few years ago, our founding partner, Regina Skyer, published a handbook for parents, How to Survive Turning 5. And every year, the Law Offices of Regina Skyer & Associates, LLP hold free legal education workshops so that as many parents as possible can learn how to navigate the so-called “Turning Five” process in New York City.

This workshop is designed for parents of preschoolers and interested special education professionals. We will go over independent evaluations, school applications, public program options, IEP meetings, hearings and appeal procedures, and more. We will also answer as many individual questions from attendees as time allows.
