ADHD Roundtable/Gurnee - tonight

Tonight (Tuesday) at 6:30PM the ADHD Roundtable will sponsor a workshop for those interested in ADHD in Gurnee at the Warren Township Youth and Family Services, 17801 W. Washington St., Gurnee, Ill. (corner of Washington and Almond, enter on Almond).

Attorney and Special Education Law Consultant Maureen Lowry-Fritz, J.D., M.A., will present the program, titled "Understanding the Body of Special Education Law... From Head to Toe" from 6:30PM-8:00PM.

About tonight's program: "American law is much like the human body. It is an assembly of independent components, each of which 'gives life' to the legal system as a whole. Special education law is no exception. Parents and educators alike must understand how the Constitution, statutes, regulations and case law interrelate to generate what we know as 'special education law.' When all parties understand the sources and roles of the law in special education, they can more effectively and efficiently work together to develop optimal special education programs for children with disabilities."
