Outreach Programs

 

Get the support you need from a community dedicated to helping children with special needs. All of our programs are provided in a user friendly way. Our programs are created and instructed by qualified Foundation Professionals or highly recommended professional supporters of our mission. 

Parental Power
Networking is important to support change. Parental experiences and referrals are priceless in helping us best advocate for our children.  For that reason, MovingMindsForward Foundation, has created a Social Advocacy Members Only Group (Free!).  This social group meets monthly in a safe space, where parents discuss advocacy issues specific to their child.  In a group setting, moderated by a MovingMindsForward Foundation Board Member - parents, advocates and parent attorneys share valuable best practices, techniques and federal/state law tutorials with a focus on special education self-advocacy.  Topics include: insight into diagnoses and finding the next step for their children, when your child needs or is eligible for an IEP, best IEP meeting practices and sponsored writing workshops (i.e. parental letters of concern, evaluation requests, and complaint/praise letters).
