The session will cover the importance of self-care and prioritizing wellness to ensure that parents and caregivers can be their most effective for their children.
Parent Mentors are parents who work within GCPS’ special education department, providing information and support to other families who have children served in special education. Mentors Dawn Albanese and Jackie McNair have first-hand knowledge of raising a child with special needs as they both have a child who has been served or is being served in GCPS.
