Beginning kindergarten is such an exciting time for children and their families!

We’ll be sharing many ideas and resources and making some great learning materials that you can use at home.

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 • 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Belmont Recreation Center – 1600 Hilliard Rd, Henrico, VA 23228
Super hero dads have the power to recognize that even if they cannot fix the problem or disability, they can take action to improve their child’s outcomes. This session will identify challenges that can prevent fathers of children with disabilities from being actively involved in their child’s education and ways to combat those challenges. We will also discuss the importance of connecting with other dads for ideas and support.
