As children enter the school system, educational issues become a priority for families.  Many parents look for advice and support as they begin to create a collaborative relationship with their child's school.  We address parental concerns of school-age children through a combination of informational meetings and social gatherings.  The School Age Matters Coordinator is available to assist parents and help provide direction as they learn about the IEP process, effective teaching strategies and making social connections.
