Description

If your preschool-aged child is currently receiving special education services or therapy, advocating for an appropriate kindergarten program is critical. For parents of children born in 2016, get a head start on the Turning Five process with Sarah Birnbaum, of New York Special Needs Support, and attorney Abbie Smith of Skyer Law. Abbie and Sarah will be joined by Dr. Laura Tagliareni and Dr. David Salsberg, neuropsychologists who have a practice together called PALS (Pediatric Assessment Learning and Support).
Together, they will provide you with invaluable guidance on:
  • Determining Your Public and Private School Options
  • Finding an Appropriate Kindergarten Program
  • Obtaining Evaluations
  • Understanding Your Child’s Legal Rights
  • Advocating for Your Child at Your Turning 5 IEP Meeting
  • Understanding how the COVID-19 Health Emergency May Impact Your Turning 5 Year
