"My first memories of school were not pleasant. It was like going to a day care. Without my mom, I would not be where I am today. She fought for my education. The experts literally hated her. All parents want to see their kids succeed in school, so why would parents of disabled kids be any different"? -C. Lenart
" My education difficulties started when I was placed in a program that handled multiple needs students. Example, I learned how to wash clothes, cook, and other things. This education was to prepare us for workshop." L. Cesal 1. Participants will be exposed to practical methods and real life experiences on how to advocate for their educational needs.
