NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus will be one of two featured speakers at the EDCO Collaborative's upcoming Legislative Forum in Weston, MA.
Her talk is entitled, "Preparing Today’s Students with Disabilities for a Successful Post-Secondary Transition."
Also speaking, on "The Changing Population of Students with Disabilities," will be Dr. David Urion of Children’s Hospital Boston, where he is Director of Behavioral Neurology Clinics and Programs, and Director of Education and Residency Training Programs in Child Neurology and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities.
In the past, the forum has been attended by a significant number of State Legislators and other leading educational policy-makers, and is expected to be equally successful this year. It is not open to the public.
