District to host free conference for parents of students with special needs


The Dallas ISD Special Education Department is hosting a free mini-conference for parents of students with special needs.

The mini-conference is happening Friday, April 1, from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. at Pleasant Oaks Recreation Center, 8701 Greenmound Ave.

The conference will feature different sessions focusing on topics such as asperger’s and high functioning autism, moving through the cycle of grief, and ADHD vs. ADD. The conference will also have sensory stations that will give parents an idea of what it is like to have special needs.

Dallas ISD Translation Services will provide simultaneous translation. Dallas ISD Special Education Social Workers will also be available to help parents with question and information.

April is Autism Awareness Month. Below is a flyer for the event:
