One of our favorites, Sara Birnbaum, is having another free talk on Life after Early Intervention. After our interview with Sara, I took advantage of her free 30-minute consultation, which is available to everyone. The amount of knowledge gained in that one conversation is priceless! Sara knows her stuff and loves to help. I urge you to attend her talk. This event is NOT uptown but worth the trek!

From Sara: Now that 2019 has begun in earnest, parents of kids turning 3 this year are thinking hard about aging out of Early Intervention: What’s the next step? Should we continue with therapies? What’s the right kind of preschool setting? If we decide to transition to CPSE, what happens at the initial IEP meeting, and what’s the best way to advocate for our child?

I will be offering a workshop covering these and other important topics on Tuesday, February 12, from 6:30-8:30pm. As always, the presentation will be free of charge. Information is below and on the attached flier, as well as on my website:
