"I know that parenting a child can feel overwhelming but there is no need to go it alone! My approach is success by choice, not by chance." - Jeri Rochman
Our guest speaker will be Jeri Rochman, Parenting Educator. The evening should be informative and helpful as we tap into Jeri’s experience as a counselor and educator. I first met Jeri at Westmark School and was instantly soothed by her calm support and positive approach to working with children with ADHD. Come with questions, ready to learn!

College Planning and Transition Conference
October 7, 2017 | 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Glendale Community College
A College Conference of this type is long overdue. It is designed specifically for students with learning differences, their families, educators and educational professionals, and allies.
We have come a long way in making sure students with disabilities enroll in college, but there is still much work to do. It is important for families, educators, and involved professionals to know about the changes in disability services at the college level and what supports and skills can help students be successful.
Come hear college transition experts speak on important topics, such as building effective social-emotional and self-advocacy skills, college financing, available accommodations and support services at college, how to find the right fit, and hear from current students about their experiences. This will be an inspiring, informative day!
