Training set for special education advocates

Have you wondered if there was something more that you or your organization could do to ensure that children with disabilities receive the most appropriate education possible? We have and are inviting you to join us.

The Arc of Philadelphia is sponsoring a 12-session special education advocacy training for parents, service providers, advocates, educators, lawyers, and therapists will be held from November through next May.

Dr. Marie C. Lewis, R.N., Ph.D. is the featured speaker.   Dr. Lewis is the Executive Director of the National Center for Autism Resources and Education,

The sessions are open to anyone interested in disability issues: parents, advocates, educators, lawyers, clinicians, social workers, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, and others.  Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of how to navigate the special education process.

People can attend one or all of the sessions.  Graduates of the program will be eligible for Board certification as an Advocate.  The  sessions will be held at the Arc of Philadelphia,  2350 W. Westmoreland Street.  Act 48  and CEU credits will be offered.
