School is approaching quickly. For many parents, that means getting school supplies, back packs, and clothes for the new year. For parents of Autistic children, it means establishing a routine, transitioning your child to a new teacher or school, navigating through your child's individualized education plan (IEP) and advocating for your child.
The Connecticut Parent Advocacy Center is offering upcoming events to get you off on the right foot:
