NWDSA’s Kindergarten Transition Bootcamp is January 28th

NWDSA’s Kindergarten Transition Bootcamp is January 28th from 8:30 am to 1 pm

“Getting Ready for the Big Day” is Northwest Down Syndrome Association’s (NWDSA) free kindergarten transition workshop designed for families of young children with developmental disabilities. The workshop will be Saturday, January 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the MESD Auditorium, 11611 N.E. Ainsworth Circle.

Moving from early childhood to the school years is exciting and can be confusing without tools and mentors to help navigate this transition. Participants are invited to bring their parental expertise and dreams to join with coordinators and guest speakers who want to help parents along the path of this exciting adventure. This interactive and best practices driven training covers information about the law and child’s rights, classroom tools and supports, IEP goal writing to support inclusion, communication tips from parents and more.

To learn more about the speakers, providers, registration and other important information, please click on the NWDSA weblink. This event is presented Northwest Down Syndrome Association, All Born (In), Disability Right Oregon, and the Parent Coalition of Clark County.
