Es de extrema importancia para padres de niños con necesidades especiales
que estén enterados de los derechos que tienen sus hijos para recibir una
educación libre y apropiada. Es particularmente importante informar a
familias minoritarias porque generalmente éstas no están familiarizadas con
leyes estatales y federales. Por esta razón, NCDB, NFADB, NYDBC y CDBS se
han unido para conducir una serie de webinars para poder ofrecerles mayores
oportunidades de aprendizaje a las familias de habla hispana que tienen un
niño que es sordo-ciego. Los participantes de estos webinars van a aprender
acerca de los derechos educacionales que están garantizados bajo la ley, y
esperamos poder reducir sus dudas o temores acerca de la educación de sus
hijos. Este primer webinar de una serie de tres se va a concentrar especí
ficamente en aprender acerca del proceso del IEP, sus leyes y tiempos*.*
Los siguientes van a ser en intervención temprana y transición a la vida
adulta.

*Presentadores*:

*Saturday, November 8, 2014*
*3pm ET/2pm CT/12pm WT**Learning Basic Rights about Special Education**A
National Webinar for Spanish Speaking Parents*

*Co-Sponsored by*
*National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB)*
*National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB)*
*New York Deaf-Blind Collaborative (NYDBC)*
*California Deaf-Blind Services (CDBS)*

It is extremely important for parents of children with special needs to be
aware of their child’s right to a free and appropriate education. Outreach
efforts to minority families are particularly important, as they typically
are not as familiar with state and federal laws. For this  reason, NCDB,
NFADB, NYDBC and CDBS are partnering to conduct a series of webinars to
support learning opportunities for Spanish speaking parents who have a
child who is deaf-blind. Participants of the webinars will learn the
educational rights they are guaranteed under the law and, hopefully, will
lessen any doubts or fears they might have regarding their child’s
education. This first of three webinars will focus specifically on learning
the IEP process, regulations and timelines. To be followed with topics on
early intervention and transition to adult life.

*Presenters*:
*Myrna Medina*, *Family Specialist for the California Deaf-Blind Services*
Myrna is from Durango, Mexico. She has two children, Deloris (20) and
Norman (18) who is deaf-blind and her inspiration to work in the field.
Myrna has been working as a Family Specialist for CDBS for 14 years. Among
her past and  current responsibilities she has been a Parent Liaison since
2007 to the Birth to Five Vision Network; a full time Parent Coordinator
for the early intervention parent group Centro de Niños y Padres at CAL
State LA from 2001 to 2009. She presently provides consultation services to
the families. Additionally, in 2010, she joined the Dicapta Board of
Advisors.

*Clara Berg, Family Specialist for the New York Deaf-Blind Collaborative*
Clara was born in Uruguay and lives in New York for over 35 years with her
husband and 3 children. Her second son, Kenny (34) is deaf-blind due to
prematurity. Willing to learn more about deaf-blindness, she volunteered at
the State Deaf-Blind Project, where she now serves as the Family Specialist
for more than 25 years. Clara is a founding member of two parent
organizations, first in 1988 for the New York Parent Network, where she is
still very involved, and in 1994, for the National Family Association for
