What does a Free and Appropriate Public Education look like in this era of distance learning? Join us for a second look at the state of special education in Montgomery County during the COVID-19 crisis. The overwhelming response to our April 7th webinar on this topic prompted us to schedule another, so that more parents could participate. 

Kimberly Glassman will present an update on the latest federal, state and local guidance, focusing in particular on special education in Montgomery County. Among other topics, she will address Individualized Distance Learning Plans, Non-public schools, and helpful tips for parents, before turning to parents' questions for the second half of the webinar.

To the extent possible please submit your questions ahead of time with your registration. (Accepting questions through 4/15). Providing questions beforehand will allow Ms. Glassman to shape her presentation to address more parents' concerns in the first half of the webinar and leave more time to answer questions from the "chat" in the second half. 

Speaker Bio: Ms. Glassman has represented parents, legal guardians and adult students in all phases of special education matters since 2005, and is currently an attorney at the Law Office of Brian K. Gruber in Rockville (which is a professional member of xMinds). Prior to joining the Law Office of Brian K. Gruber, Ms. Glassman operated as a sole practitioner, representing clients in special education, child abuse and neglect, guardianship, adoption, and juvenile matters.
