"Move Up" Fair for Families of Children Transitioning within Westford Public Schools
About the Event
Do you have a child on an IEP who is entering Kindergarten, 3rd grade, 6th grade, or 9th grade in September 2013? Are you anxious about this move and curious to understand how to support your child during this transition? If so, please join SEPAC for our “Move Up” Fair.
To kick off the event, a psychologist will speak about change and how children adapt to changes in their daily routines.
Following the presentation, members of Westford Student Services will be available to answer your questions and discuss common transition issues for students at their grade levels.
Important Note: This event does not cover post-secondary transition services or transition to Nashoba Valley Technical High School. This event does not replace the Information Nights hosted by the individual schools.
About the Speakers
Courtney M. Moran, Director of Student Services, will be joined by a psychologist and Special Education Team Chairs from all grade levels (Pre-K thru High School).
