This interactive three-part series is for DC families of school-aged children (ages 4-12) who suspect that their child might benefit from learning and/or behavioral supports. We will discuss what rights you have in terms of accessing support, how to obtain an evaluation through both public and private channels, what the evaluation process actually looks like, how to understand the landscape of available educational and behavioral support structures, and how to use your evaluation results to acquire support services, including through the DC public school system. Led by experts in the fields of neuropsychological assessments and education law and advocacy, each part of the series will include a formal presentation followed by lots of time for questions and discussion.
