Please join us for a virtual family forum on special education on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 - 6:15 - 9:00pm.

Who should attend? Families with children of all ages interested in learning about special education in New York City Public Schools.

What to expect? Families will learn about a variety of special education topics from experts, hear from parent leaders, and get tools that can be used to support participation in the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. Workshops will meet the diverse learning needs of families who are new to special education, those with children who are preparing for life after high school, and everything in between. The New York City Public Schools staff will also share timely information about summer learning and what to expect next school year.
