WEST MILFORD Renay Zamloot, education advocate, will present a TASH Training workshop on Thursday, June 28. The topic: Shouldn't Schools Be Safe?
This presentation will focus on preventing the use of forced seclusion and restraint on children and young adults with disabilities in public school and private school settings paid by public funds.
You will hear from the parents of a young child with disabilities who has been victimized by these abusive practices. You will learn how to develop IEPs (Individualized Education Program) with positive supports and the steps you should take if you suspect your child has been subjected to the use of these harmful tactics.
Zamloot is a professional education advocate who has been serving students with disabilities and their families for more than 15 years.
This workshop is free and open to all parents and professionals. It will be held at Hillcrest Community Center, 1810 Macopin Road, West Milford, on Thursday, June 28, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
