Teacher with kindergarten students

Do you have a child with a disability who is entering kindergarten in an Oregon school this Fall?

This free webinar is designed to support parents/caregivers of young children with disabilities. The transition to kindergarten is exciting but can also be stressful for families. The protracted COVID-19 pandemic during 2020 has created unprecedented stresses and concerns for parents. This webinar addresses the following topics:

  • Tips for preparing and supporting your child as they transition to elementary school
  • What type of home routines can support your child’s learning during this pandemic
  • What to do if you have concerns about your child’s academic or social/emotional growth
  • Levels of services and supports available in schools

A Question and Answer period will be available.
