Educational Advocacy

Course description

The “Extended School Year” (ESY) is only for students with disabilities. It is not the same as summer school. 

This webinar will walk you through how you can advocate for ESY for your child; the criteria that should be considered for eligibility, as well as what should not be considered, and the process for making sure ESY is implemented for any eligible child. ESY is an important program to consider and provide for a child with a disability. Armed with the information in this webinar, you can help make it happen!
