Monthly Caregiver Workshops

Cocktails and Bureaucracy and Coffee & Conversation are Extreme Kids & Crew's ongoing series of workshops / support groups in which panelists and caregivers share advocacy resources and information. The workshops will have the same topics but held on separate days. Cocktails & Bureaucracy is an informal evening gathering at Freddy's Bar on week nights, and Coffee & Conversation is hosted at P.S. 71 on select weekends.

Upcoming Topic: Transition planning

Get to know the basics of transition into postsecondary life for students with disabilities, including changes in disability legislation, planning, policies and procedures, evaluations and assessments, transition goals on the IEP, and next steps. We will also discuss housing, working, and adult life, with an emphasis on building independence for the young people. As always, there will be time for Q&A as well!
