Description

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

Veteran attorney Regina Skyer’s “How to Survive Turning Five” workshop is based on her indispensable 2015 book, “How to Survive Turning Five.”

Parents attending this workshop will learn about:

  • the rights of students with disabilities
  • the transition from CPSE to CSE
  • the continuum of programs available to all “turning five” students
  • what “pendency” is–and what it is not
  • the process for tuition reimbursement
  • impartial hearings, appeals, and settlement procedures
  • school applications
  • why independent evaluations are important, and
  • what to do, step by step, to ensure a positive outcome

This workshop is designed for parents of preschoolers and interested special education professionals. Three Skyer Law attorneys Regina Skyer, Greg Cangiano and Abbie Smith will also answer as many individual questions from attendees as time allows.

Regina Skyer founded the Law Offices of Regina Skyer & Associates in 1992 for the sole purpose of advocating, mediating, and litigating on behalf of children with special education needs. Learn more about Skyer Law by visiting their website.
