The Newton Special Education Parent Advisory Council (Newton SEPAC) is hosting a seminar on Basic Rights in Special Education for the Asian American Communities. The speaker will be Susan Ou from the Federation for Children with Special Needs, who will present and can answer questions in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, depending on the needs of audience members. Anping Shen, who is a Newton School Committee member, will speak. Eileen Sandberg from the SEPAC will give a short talk about special education in Newton, and her experience with her children. They plan to leave lots of time for questions.
Discussions will cover the student’s and parent’s legal rights, how to explore whether special education services would be helpful, and the support that the parents in the Newton SEPAC can provide.
The presentation is a free event and all are welcome. Begin with refreshments and networking at 7:15 pm, and the presentation and question session will be from 7:30 pm – approximately 9:30 pm.
January 30th, 7:15 – 9:30 pm
