April Workshop Targets Parents of Children with Disabilities

March 11 , 2011
by Morgan Josey Glover

GREENSBORO -- Parents and professionals who need clarity on how to serve or advocate for children with disabilities can attend an April workshop led by a prominent special education attorney.

The Guilford County Council of PTAs will host its “Special Education Law & Advocacy Conference” with Virginia attorney Peter Wright on April 7 at Westover Church. The conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 7 at Westover Church, 505 Muirs Chapel Road.

Wright grew up with learning disabilities and successfully argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1993.

Wright now spends most of his time teaching and training people all over the country. He and his wife, Pam, also operate Wrightslaw.com, a education law and advocacy website.

Workshop participants can expect to review and discuss federal laws, testing requirements, building relationships with school personnel.

“They will not have to rely on anyone else telling them what the law is,” Wright said. “So often, many people gain their knowledge of the law from someone who tells them in a seminar. I will have them actually read the statute and have them discuss it as they read it. That’s one of the few things I really focus on is empowering the audience to be able to find answers to the questions on their own.”
