Chantal Sicile-Kira Offers Award-winning Advice to Parents About Adolescence

Does your adolescent on the spectrum struggle with keeping good hygiene, going through puberty, or other even-more-sensitive topics?

A 30-minute Q&A session with refreshments and a book signing will follow (Chantal's helpful books will be available).

Do You Want to Know Your Child's Educational Rights?

Going into the new school year or transitioning to the next tier in your child's school life can be a nerve-wracking experience. What does your child need? What is your child entitled to? What changes are coming in California? An experienced legal advocate guiding you in the beginning stages of the IEP journey can make all the difference to a positive trajectory for your child's educational future. Trusted legal advocate Heyman Hakimi of the Long Beach law offices of Michelle Ortega will be at Beacon Day School on Saturday, September 29th beginning at 11 a.m. for an informal 1-hour talk, where you can then sign up for a free future consultation about your own child's unique circumstances. Refreshments will be served, and childcare will be available (please pack a peanut-free lunch or snack).
