"Collaborative Advocacy Efforts: Working Together Towards Change" Webinar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzQS0TpPPi4

Advocating for students with learning and attention issues is definitely not a one-person job. It takes a village, including parents, educators, researchers, thought leaders and policy makers at the local, state and federal level to move the needle forward for kids with learning and attention issues. And, the more we work together, the more we can get accomplished.

In fact, there are many collaborative advocacy efforts going on right now across the country to help improve the lives of students with dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia, dyscalulia, processing issues and other learning and attention issues. In this webinar, learn about the importance of working together towards change, what efforts are currently underway to make a difference for students with disabilities, plus learn how you can get directly involved.

In this presentation Lyn Pollard, Parent Advocacy Manager with the National Center for Learning Disabilities will give a first-hand look behind the scenes of ongoing advocacy efforts at the federal, state and local level, helping highlight why community development and collaboration are keys to success. Lyn will present about grassroots advocacy efforts, give an update on ESEA and IDEA federal legislation action and give parents helpful tips and tricks about how to quickly get involved and make the biggest impact for not only their own child, but for other children as well.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Lyn Pollard is the parent advocacy manager for the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD). She works as part of the NCLD’s DC-based Policy and Advocacy team to connect parents to resources and education to enhance their advocacy efforts for children with learning and attention issues.
