Revised programs and exciting events offer support to Cobb’s parents.
New parent workshops, special events and ongoing support headline the second semester of offerings hosted by CCSD’s Special Education Parent Mentors.
Revisions to the program schedule were made to accommodate the interests of Cobb’s parents of students with disabilities; slight changes were made for morning programs to provide support on a variety of topics, but dates and times for those remain the same. The evening schedule was revised to focus on two special events: this month’s Community Connections Resource Fair and the March Evening of Inspiration.
Three email blasts have been sent the week of January 6: one that includes the revised program flyer, a second for the January 15 “Help on the Homefront” workshop, and a third promoting the resource fair on January 27. We have also posted our events on social media; please follow the Cobb Special Education Parent Mentors on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“Help on the Homefront” is a workshop designed to provide parents with instructional strategies to help their students at home. That workshop, along with the future “Strategies for Communication Development and Emotional Regulation” and “Looking Toward School Year 2020-21,” round out the year’s newest offerings.
If you’re looking for fun ways to plug your student with special needs into extracurricular opportunities within Cobb and the Atlanta area, make plans to attend the 4thAnnual Community Connections Resource Fair on Monday, January 27, at Wheeler High School. More than 50 representatives from organizations, attractions and businesses will be available to share their offerings with parents.
As always, CCSD’s Special Education Parent Mentors are available to provide guidance as parents navigate their student’s journey in special education. Stacy Greene and Antoinette Nichols, both parents of students with disabilities, host the above programs and events but are also available by phone and email for support.
