Back to School with the August CAN Newsletter

The August edition of the CAN Newsletter is here, with some important information to consider as you get ready for the new academic year.

For anyone with a family member with a disability that is part of the K-12 public education system, this issue includes a helpful review of the essential differences between an IEP and a 504 Plan. While both can be useful tools to make sure your student gets the supports and services they need, these two approaches work differently. Find clear answers to your questions about IEP's and 504 Plans in the CAN Newsletter! 

Even if the end of your student's academic career seems like it's in the distant future, it's never too early to start thinking about that transition to college or career. So our back-to-school issue also features information from Vocational Rehabiliation, with a focus on the services they offer to help youth transition successfully into the adult world of work and higher education.

Whatever the coming school year holds for you and your family, The Family Cafe wishes you the best of luck. Never stop learning, and never stop growing!
