Making the Most of Your Child's Neuropsychological Evaluation (.pdf flyer)

What is a neuropsych and when is it necessary? What is a 504 plan? What is the difference between 504 and an Individual Education Plan (I.E.P.), and what are the advantages to each? What resources are needed to get 504 and I.E.P. setup for kids? This month at Cocktails & Bureaucracy we’ll answer these questions and more.

We’re excited to have two very accomplished speakers to lead our discussion: Developmental Neuropsychologist, Claire Golden, PhD, and Civil Rights Attorney, Miriam Nunberg, who started her career as a special education teacher.

Location: Freddy's Bar (back room), 627 5th Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11215

This monthly group, loosely lead by Extreme Kids & Crew’s Executive Director, is available to parents whose children are participating in KEEN New York's basketball program in Brooklyn. Head out for some much deserved respite time, or stick around nearby with fellow parents and chat. Discussion topics are meant to connect and support, or simply entertain. The group will decide the structure, or lack thereof. Coffee, lots of coffee, will be provided.

Next Event: Oct. 1, 10:00-11:00am

Sign up for KEEN New York's Brooklyn basketball program to receive an invitation to Coffee & Conversation.


Join us for a Saturday morning parent workshop at the Ridgewood Space to discuss the services available to families with children with disabilities. These seasonal events will be led by professionals in the disability community and disabled adults, with the goal to provide a better understanding to the NYC services system, and what it means to grow up with a disability and flourish.

Nov. 4
