Education: Navigating Special Education

Published June 1, 2011 at 4:00 a.m.

The Vermont Family Network is offering local parents and educators a digital helping hand with free, monthly webinars focused on helping kids with special needs. VFN's June webinar covers Vermont's special-education system, with information on individual education plans, evaluations, parents' rights and managing disagreements. VFN began offering the hourlong sessions earlier this year; anyone with access to a computer and a high-speed Internet connection can "attend." Participants log in at the appointed time to hear the VFN presenter and watch a PowerPoint presentation. The forum also allows attendees to ask questions of the presenter via a chat window. It's a new-school way to get help with old-school questions about kids and community resources.

Navigating Special Education: Webinar on Friday, June 10, noon to 1 p.m. Preregister online. Free. Info, 800-800-4005.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
