As your friends worry about their children’s teachers, after school clubs and social activities, parents of children with special needs have worries that extend way beyond these concerns. Constantly changing insurance policies, planning for the future, bills piling up for specialized toys and therapies; the list is endless.

A unique evening planned by the Friendship Circle of Brooklyn, will be held in one week on Wednesday, April 26th at the Jewish Children’s Museum at 8:00pm. This event is open to ALL parents of children with special needs in Crown Heights. Parents will be addressed by keynote speaker Rabbi Yossi Paltiel, following that they will have the opportunity to partake in a round table discussion of their choice.

Drawing together experts from various fields, parents will have the opportunity to be educated on a range of topics, ensuring every single child is receiving optimal services, care and benefits. Parents will have the opportunity to learn tips and strategies on how to most efficiently operate as a family unit despite the unique challenges that are involved and get informed on how to navigate smoothly through the hardships that arise at different stages of a child with special needs life.
