Networking Event for Parents of Children with Special Needs

A networking event on services, care and benefits for parents of children with special needs will take place in Crown Heights.

As your friends worry about their children’s teachers, after school clubs and social activities,
parents of children with special needs have worries that extend way beyond these concerns.
Constantly changing insurance policies, planning for the future, bills piling up for specialized
toys and therapies; the list is endless.

A unique evening planned by the Friendship Circle of Brooklyn, will be held in one week on
Wednesday, February 13th at the Jewish Children’s Museum at 8:00pm and is open to all parents in the community that are raising a child with special needs.

Parents will be addressed by renowned speaker and Shliach Rabbi Ben Tzion Krasnianski, following that they will have the opportunity to partake in round table discussions of their choice.

Drawing together experts from various fields, parents will have the opportunity to be
educated on a range of topics, ensuring every single child is receiving optimal services, care
and benefits. Parents will have the opportunity to learn tips and strategies on how to most
efficiently operate as a family unit despite the unique challenges that are involved and get
informed on how to navigate smoothly through the different stages of a child with special needs life.
