Kids Have the Right to Learn LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

We will be talking about how we received a proper education as children with Cerebral Palsy. Teachers and experts continue to think that children with CP have a limited ability to learn. We will explain what our parents did to get the education that we deserved. These days parents have the same problems as we had in the 70's and 80's which is totally unfair for children now. We want parents to be armed with knowledge how to stand up for their children's future. Their future starts with the education that will make them to be successful in life. Without the education, where will these children be when they grow up? We hope most of them will have a college degree and will be contributing to society as we are. 1. Learn ways to get your child the education that they deserve. 2. Learn tips that our parents used to get us the education we deserved. 3. See the outcome that our parents fought for.
