Event description

Description

BC Parents of Special Needs Children - Action for Equitable Access to Education are presenting a full day workshop for special ed parents.

Featuring a Key Note Address by Rick Moore. Rick Moore is a North Vancouver father who won a landmark court case that ruled the North Vancouver School District discriminated against his dyslexic son. At the heart of the case was what responsibility the school system bears to help special needs children succeed. Rick and his family spent fifteen (15!) years going through legal process in order to set this important precedent.

Workshop topics will include:

Lindsay Waddell, Senior Associate at Moore Edgar Lyster - "Practical information about human rights claims"

Erika Cedillo and Pepe Duarte - "Building Constructive Relationships"

Theresa Grech, Clinical Counsellor/Educator - "Advocacy in Mental Health"

A parent panel discussion and Q&A session including Nicole Kaler, Bobbi Taylor, Jodie Wickens and Suzanne Perrault

There is plenty of free parking at the Pacific Autism Family Network in Richmond. Lunch and materials are included in the price. Please contact the organizer with any questions or concerns about this event.
