Wednesday, July 18, 2018 • 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

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.
