EPLAC October Meeting and Workshop


Hello Families,
The East Providence Local Advisory Committee For Special Education (EPLAC) welcomes all to attend the October meeting held on Wednesday October 26h at 6:00 pm at the Martin Middle School Library. 111 Brown St. East Providence.

This month’s meeting will feature a workshop: Neurodiversity
Presented by: Brittany Kobeissi, M.S.
CCC-SLP Speech-Language Pathologist.

This workshop will inform parents, educators, support staff, and community members of the importance of understanding neurodiversity with an emphasis on embracing that there is no "right" way of thinking, learning, and behaving. Join us and make a shift toward more neurodiversity-affirming practices.
