I am just thrilled to be sending out our first Long Island Parent Center (LIPC) newsletter which is now sponsored through the Center for Community Inclusion (CCI) at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. The transition has been smooth and exciting. As many of you know, I am a parent of two young adults with special needs, and a professional in the field of education. I am honored to be coordinating this project and to be working with CCI to maximize our mission. My focus in life and in my professional capacity has always been building positive relationships. As we move forward with the work of the Long Island Parent Center, building positive educational teams will always be a priority. Parents and families of children with special needs, as well as the students themselves, are the link to improving outcomes. Our goal is to provide technical assistance, support, and resources to families and professionals.  We are here to serve you and truly look forward to our work together. Please feel free to contact us to arrange a training, ask a question, or just check in!

I would like to take this opportunity to say how excited I am to continue my work at the Long Island Parent Center and to be a part of the team at the Center for Community Inclusion at the C. W. Post Campus of LIU. I am currently the Education Outreach Coordinator providing technical assistance to parents and professionals who are serving children with special needs. In my current role, I will continue to present workshops to parents and professionals on various educational topics in both English and Spanish.

As a former teacher for the New York City Department of Education, I understand the demands placed on educators in challenging systems. As a parent of a child with special needs, I continue to experience the barriers and breakthroughs of raising a child in our education system. I recognize how overwhelming it can be, but when a goal is reached, there is nothing more rewarding. I am currently a member of the NYS Education Department's Commissioner's Advisory Panel for Special Education, representing parents and families. I am Past President of the Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) in my school district, and continue to serve on various committees and task forces always focused on improving outcomes for our children.

I am here to answer questions and resolve a wide variety of issues related to the educational process. My hope is to provide parents and professionals with the information they need to effectively communicate and to educate them on the special education process.
