"Caregivers, especially parents can become overwhelmed by the experiences involved in caring and advocating for a child who requires extra support and attention. As attorneys working with families to obtain special education services we are always aware that part of our job is to help with the emotional aspects of advocacy however it is crtical to the overall family well being to help the parent/caregiver learn to take care of themselves and that is why this event is so important." said conference organizer Mandy Leigh, partner at the Leigh Law Group.
"We hope to attract families and children to this event that are interested in learning information about advocacy and services but also about strengthing the family dynamic." An area with children's activities will be set up along with light refreshments.
