A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned how excited I am to have the opportunity to explore a new way to share information through a regular segment on The Alabama Way, called “Get Connected”, airing on Tuesday mornings (and repeating on Thursday mornings) from 5:00 to 6:00 a.m. on WPXH-44 in Birmingham.
Check out the lineup through the end of the year:
November 18 – Jerry Tate, 2013-2014 President, John Herbert Phillips Academy in Birmingham City Schools – How parents and PTAs work together to improve our schools, and how you can become a part of that work.
December 2 – Susan Ellis, State Coordinator, People First of Alabama – The importance of keeping students receiving special education alongside their peers in the general education classroom.
December 16 – Gina Lowe, Attorney, co-founder of The Gallini Group, specializing in the practice of special education law – The importance of knowing your child’s rights and the journey through special education.
December 30 – Kenneth Paschal, Director of Governmental Affairs and President of the Birmingham Chapter of the Alabama Family Rights Association – A non-custodial parent’s right to participate in their child’s education and how to better engage with your child’s educational needs.
Here is Brown sharing information on how to advocate for your child with special needs. Get out your notepad and be ready to take notes.
Gwendolyn Brown is a director of the Alabama School Connection.
