Event Details

For parents/caregivers interested in learning more about the dynamics of raising a family that includes both special needs and typically developing children. This is not a “how to” session but an open exploration of different panelists’ experiences.

·        Moderated by Kristin O'Nesky and Ramzi Nashashibi, PUSD Psychologists

·        Adult, high school, and middle school aged sibs will be represented

·        Learn what non-disabled sibs think and feel from their perspective

·        Audience questions are encouraged

·        Resources and supports will be discussed

In an effort to reduce paper usage and costs, any handouts or presenter notes will be provided ONLINE two days prior to the event.  Please print a copy prior to the event if you wish to have a handout during the event.

Help support THE HANGER.  Get rid of your unwanted items while supporting a good cause (and get a tax deduction). The Hanger is a Vocational Skills Classroom located in Room 703B on the Village High School Campus. It teaches job skills to students with special needs while providing clothing to families in need. The Hanger is currently seeking donations of gently used or new clothing, shoes, school supplies. In addition, they will accept all brands of laundry supplies (detergent, fabric softeners etc). They are also in need of plastic storage containers to help rotate and store donations and NEW underwear and socks of all sizes.  Please bring your donations to the event and we will provide a tax donation receipt.

Organizer

Pleasanton PTA Council Special Needs Committee

The SNC sponsors evening speaker events with well-known local authorities on topics such as learning and behavioral challenges; anxiety in children and teens; ADHD; and understanding the Individual Education Plan (IEP) process.

We strive to foster positive relationships between parents and PUSD, and spread awareness of the different abilities throughout our community.

The SNC broadly defines “special needs” as applying to any child with a learning or processing difference, physical disability, cognitive delay, speech & language delay, social or emotional difficulty, behavioral challenge or food allergy, as well children who are gifted learners.
