Austin, Texas, June 9, 2007


Wrightslaw Special Education and Advocacy Conference, a Wrightslaw training program with Pete Wright and Pam Wright, is being brought to you by the Hear Me Foundation.

Note: In collaboration with Wrightslaw and Parent to Parent, Hear Me Family Participants, Parent Advocates and Attorneys will be required to either attend the Wrightslaw seminar with Parent to Parent, on Thursday, June 7, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Omni Austin Hotel Southpark, at 4140 Governor's Row, Austin, Texas 78744 or provide proof of prior attendance at an earlier Wrightslaw program.

Parent to Parent's registration began in March and parents, parent advocates and attorneys must register separately for Thursday's training. This Saturday, June 9 program will be advanced advocacy training since all registrants will have attended the Thursday program or prior Wrightslaw program.

The program will be held at:

Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children

Texas Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Texas Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people can get reliable information and support.

The State Yellow Pages has many useful resources - evaluators, educational consultants, academic tutors, support groups, grassroots organizations, advocates, attorneys and others who help parents get services for their children.

If you provide a service, sign up to be listed on the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities - this is a free service from Wrightslaw.
