Special education, public supports and services, and society's views on disability as a whole are greatly influenced by public policy and media coverage. A new presidential administration means change, intense debate, and inevitably new laws and regulations that will affect the disability community.
At INCLUDEnyc, we understand that these changing times can be unsettling, and that knowledge is power. In response, we have created a new monthly Navigator: PERSPECTIVES, to supplement our weekly Navigator.
PERSPECTIVES will offer a broad range of conversations about the policies and issues that are relevant to you and the disability community. It will also include opportunities to support our community in an active way.
If you have any questions about PERSPECTIVES, or about your child's disability, please contact us at info@INCLUDEnyc.org, or call our free Help Line at 212-677-4660.
