ALBANY, N.Y. (October 2, 2009) -- Parents, family members and school district personnel are vital partners in the education of their children -- especially children with disabilities receiving individualized or group instruction special education services. Specialist Lisa Grippo-Gardner will present, "Meeting the Needs of the Special Needs Child—What Every Parent Should Know," at 1 p.m. in the Earth Sciences Building Room 241 during UAlbany Community Day on October 10.

Grippo-Gardner will provide vital information to parents and guardians about the laws, regulations, and policies that affect special education programs and services.

The talk is open to the public.

Grippo-Gardner’s presentation is just one of the many activities at UAlbany Community Day, designed to showcase the University’s academic and cultural strengths.  The Day – which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. – will boast faculty presentations on topics ranging from the historical significance of the Battle of Saratoga to nanotechnology; interactive student step dancing and belly dancing demonstrations; a farmer’s market; bomb-sniffing dog and sheepherding exhibitions; and student presentations.
