Another incredible group this last Thursday night on “Advocating for Your Child’s Educational Needs” discussing how to prepare our kids for a productive school year and how to navigate the school system special needs programs and advocating for our children. Our guest speaker for this month was Kelli Stocker (you will want to remember this name). She is an amazing resource for our parents with kids struggling through the school system, Kelli is a guidance counselor with the School District of Hillsborough County on special assignment to support students in foster care. In this role she works with the youth, foster parents and service providers to complete educational plans for students, monitors their progress and serves as the children’s educational advocate. She clearly has a heart for our kids and has openly availed herself to also assist our adoptive families in need of guidance and assistance.
You can reach her at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or (813)210-4108.
Just a reminder, our parent support group is on the second Thursday 6:30 to 8:00pm of every month are open to both Pre and Post adoptive families.
