Parents of students with special needs are invited to two informational workshops presented by the Northwest Suburban High School District 214 Student Services Department and the Parent Advisory Council in conjunction with the Illinois State Board Parent and Educator Partnership.

Both sessions will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road, Arlington Heights in Room D100-101.

The first session, "Self-Advocacy in High School and Beyond," is set for Monday, March 11, and will provide a framework for self-advocacy with tips for students and parents, as well as personal experiences from high schoolers and young adults with special needs. This seminar's target audience is middle school and high school students and their parents.

The second session, "Transition Planning for Your Student's Future," is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16. This workshop will focus on looking at long-term goals for students with special needs, and planning "backwards," so that the right support systems (educationally, through social services, and others) are in place when they are needed.

Both sessions are free and open to the public. Materials will be provided. Preregistration is encouraged at http://www.d214.org/educational_services/parent_workshops.aspx. For information, contact Karen Schwartzwald, (847) 718-6583, or StudentServices@d214.org
