"Working Effectively with Parents in Preschool Special Education and Beyond!"
with a panel of families and professionals presenting from their experiences!
When: Thursday, May 28, 2015 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
There will be optional time to talk with individual presenters from 5:00-5:30 to apply the knowledge to specific situations, or participants can schedule time with them via phone or in person before the end of June.
Location: McConnell Center, Dover, NH
Description: This interactive, small group workshop will provide participants with important components and examples of how school districts can support parents in preschool special education (and beyond!). From transition from ESS through identification, IEP development, service delivery, and transition to Kindergarten, there are many opportunities for successes in developing partnerships with parents. The panel of presenters from Dover Family School Alliance, Parent Information Center, NH Family Voices and Farmington School District Preschool Program will share their wisdom and advice regarding practices that have built relationships and trust. There will be opportunities to ask questions and learn about resources.
Participants: NH Preschool Special Education staff or Community Childcare personnel. Two people from each agency/program can apply. Others from the agency/program are placed on a wait list for available space.
To register: contact Pam Miller Sallet. Email or fax works best. Only 2 people from each agency/program will be accepted initially. Others will be placed on a waiting list.

We were established in 2007 by Dr. Ann Helmus, along with a core group of seasoned clinicians. NESCA serves children and their families from throughout the United States and from many other nations.
We assess children and adolescents confronted by developmental, learning or emotional challenges. Employing a range of specialized diagnostic and projective tests, we evaluate:

· Executive functioning deficits
· Emotional issues including anxiety
NESCA is well known and widely acknowledged as one of the finest private pediatric neuropsychology practices in New England.
Collectively, our senior staff has decades of experience at the highest levels. Working together with a shared commitment to best practice and a willingness to go well beyond the expected in time and effort, they deliver accurate and insightful assessments of even the most complex cases. Their evaluations generate timely, exceptionally clear and useful written reports, which embody a rich understanding of each child. They have the training, experience, clinical judgment and professional standing to perform thorough and accurate diagnostic evaluations, make persuasive, useful recommendations and monitor their effective implementation.
We also offer expert assistance with educational planning and school selection, transition assessment, planning and support for young adults moving into post-secondary education and beyond, into the workplace, and an array of accommodations for international clients.
