Coffee & Connections
This is a unique opportunity to have a relaxed visit with trained advocates and parents and receive support and information for your individual needs.
Phones and computers will be available to draft documents, complete forms or contact local agencies. Bring your latest advocacy project - your child's IEP, communication tool, letter for an elected official/
school administrator, etc.
"Coffee & Connections" will be held from 10am-1pm on the fourth Friday of every month. The first two sessions will be July 22 and August 26. Please stop in for as little or as long as you wish.
