“Special Education 101” An LDA Speaker Series

Our 2014/2015 speaker series called “Special Education 101” will include a wide variety of topics and offers a great opportunity for parents to hear from other parents, experts, school administrators, teachers and professionals. It’s a great way to further educate ourselves about the differences our children may encounter, the resources available to them and to hear that you are not alone!! There are commonalities along this journey and we know it’s not easy. Come listen, learn and share!

Most speaking presentations are held at Lake Forest High School West Campus, 300 S. Waukegan Road, Lake Forest.
