WORKSHOP SCHEDULE: Check our website to see and register for upcoming trainings. The next in–house training here at DREDF is Monday, January 13th, 2014 from 6 – 8:30.

Dear Friends and Family Caregivers,

Happy Holidays from the Education Advocates at DREDF! Like you, we care for and/or about children with disabilities, and understand how hard it is to stay on top of all the rights, laws, and rules for navigating the special education maze. This month, we've put together a handy guide to past issues to help you find the topics that are specific to your child's individual situation.

Preparing for a new year full of learning and growing for our children is our shared goal. Whether you are a caregiver living the day-to-day reality of getting help for a child with a disability, or a professional working on behalf of many such children, information really is power when it comes to effective advocacy.

We encourage you to explore our new website for many resources related to education access for children with disabilities, including links to all Special EDition newsletters we have produced. DREDF is working on multiple fronts nationally and internationally to improve the lives of people with disabilities, and it's important to remember that our children grow up to be adults who will need more than just education access to participate fully in our society. It's a work in progress, so check often for new and updated resources.
