HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Thousands of children in Hawaii have some form of a special need. ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia to name a few. These children often struggle silently in school, struggling every day, parents do their absolute best to help them, hours of homework, tutors, camps and endless discussions with teachers.

"For some children these interventions help, but for many more it simply isn't enough. These children need an Individualized Education Plan but parents have no idea how to get this, and if they do get a meeting they don't understand all the words the school uses to determine their child's needs," said Dr. Karen Tyson, founder of The LD and ADHD Center of Hawaii. This workshop is to help YOU, the parent understand the law and the process of getting your child the help he or she needs and is legally entitled to.

The LD-ADHD Center of Hawaii is sponsoring a Wrightslaw special education advocacy 2-day bootcamp conference at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu on April 7th and 8th.  The conference is for parents, educators, advocates and attorneys for accurate, reliable information about special education law, education law, and advocacy for children with disabilities. The program is not disability specific.  Both Pete and Pam Wright will be speakers at the event along with Dr. Karen Tyson from the LD-ADHD Center of Hawaii.
