“Wrightslaw – Special Education Law and Advocacy”

REGISTER HERE to become a sponsor.

For our 2022 Conference we are excited to welcome Pete Wright, Esq. from Wrightslaw to present a training on “Special Education Law and Advocacy.” This one-day training program is designed to meet the needs of parents, educators, health care providers, advocates and attorneys. It will focus on special education law, tests & measures, SMART IEPs and strategies for effective advocacy. There will also be an opportunity for parents to chat over lunch. Please visit our VFN Annual Conference page for more information.

We are hoping that you will consider becoming a sponsor! This is a great way to support our goal of bringing inspiring speakers and practical information to families of children and youth with disabilities or special health needs and the professionals who serve them. This year we are charging a fee to cover the cost of food and the three books that are required for the training. Your sponsorship will help to defray our costs and allows us to offer scholarships to families who may not be able to pay the fee.

Our Sponsor Levels and Benefits are listed below, and you can register as a sponsor and pay online here.

If you could complete the sponsor registration by Friday, March 4th, it would be greatly appreciated.

We want to thank you for your ongoing commitment to Vermont’s children, youth, and families, and hope that we can count on your sponsorship. This conference provides an opportunity for parents to learn new skills that will help them support their child or youth with disabilities or special health needs and allows an important opportunity for parents to network and learn from each other as well as the professionals that attend. We could not make this important annual event happen without supporters like you, and we are grateful for your consideration.
