The first parent night informational meeting will be held in conjunction with the LABBB Dance on Oct. 13, from 7 – 9 at theLexington High School. We invite a variety of speakers to bring information to our parents to help with transition. Our first speaker is going to be Michael Weiner. Michael is a parent of a special needs son and is in the business of financial planning. Michael comes to inform parents about his experiences in navigating adult systems and he offers what he knows free of charge. We have some parents who have used his services, and attend his groups in Newton. He comes recommended by several parents and they really enjoyed and learned from his presentation last year so we wanted to have him back this year.
All meetings offer an opportunity for parents to network and learn. The parent group is looking for new members who are interested in becoming more active, and anyone who is interested in leading the group. Topics are parent/need/transition driven, and we are looking to them to take as much ownership of the group as they want.
