Moving On: Transitioning Families From CPSE to CSE @ Herkimer ARC
Jun 8 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Making a transition easier occurs when families and providers understand the process. It is a time of excitement and anxiety. For families of children with disabilities this transition can be even more challenging. This workshop will help participants to understand the transition process to be an active member of the transition team, understand the difference between CPSE and CSE, to understand the components of an IEP, and to strategize ways to introduce new providers to the child. Transition is a time of opportunity and growth, celebrate it!

Promoting Learning Over the Summer @ UCP Kelberman
Jun 13 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Learning shouldn’t end when summer vacation starts.  Please join us for an engaging presentation and conversation about great ideas to continue your child’s learning throughout the summer.  Families will be provided with ideas surrounding academic activities, computer games, and places to visit to enhance their child’s learning.  This training will focus on grades K-5 but all grade levels are welcome to attend.  

This session will also be streamed live.  You will receive information on how to connect online once you have registered.

In person, the audience is invited to stay for a “hand on” activity following the presentation to work on a Child’s “What Works Portfolio” to share with people over the summer such as camp counselors, coaches, and summer school teachers.  This activity is for all ages. Please bring a picture of your child!
