Closing out Year 3 with a powerful event and partnership…2016 09 FLW

We closed out Year 3 during September in collaboration with our partners at the Parents’ Place of Maryland for the annual Family Learning Weekend. This year’s event was focused on transition, and included a special advocacy dinner meeting that provided information and a feedback forum for HR 3535 – a resolution that when signed into law, includes legislation that positively impacts students with dual sensory impairment.
