The kids picked for the following book club (in January) the "I Survived..." series by Lauren Tarshis. Kids can read any one of them, and then we'll compare. There's "I survived the sinking of the Titanic, 1912", "I survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005" and 7 others to choose from.

Details: We all read the same book or series, then chat about it. We always do an activity or game related to the book, and often get a bit silly! Snacks provided.  Copies available from the Children's room staff.  The club meets one Tuesday afternoon a month at 3:45. Open to all in gr. 2 and 3 who have read part of the book, or had it read to them.

    Contact: Suzanne Brouillard   978-804-1323   
   

Children and young adults with special needs and disabilities need parents and guardians who are effective advocates. The inclusion of your child in school and the community is his/her right under IDEA, ADA and MA Special Education Laws. This workshop will provide an overview of how parents/guardians can obtain the skills for effective advocacy. Disability rights to access go well beyond the IEP and the school system and they can be used to allow inclusion in the community, from town programs to private organizations.
