Town Hall: Back to School for K-12 Students in Vermont with Disabilities or Special Health Needs – 9/18

September 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

As the new school year begins, families of children with disabilities or special health needs are making hard choices about what works best for their family. There is so much information which changes constantly that it can be hard to keep up with it all. In this Town Hall, we’ll answer some of the most common questions that families are asking. You are invited to submit your questions in advance to EventsCoordinator@vtfn.org.
