Differently-Abled Student Empowerment Series: Using Your Voice

Event Type


A free webinar series for parents and high-school-age youth with IEPs on overcoming hardship, strengthening relationships and self-advocacy

Family Matters Parent Training & Information Center‘s  Differently-abled Student Empowerment Series will conclude with “Using Your Voice” on March 23 from 7 – 8 p.m.

Self-advocacy skills are critical for success in the adult world. The prime time to work on those skills is while students are still in school.  However, students who have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) may not know how to talk about their own learning needs or explain them to others.

This webinar will focus on teaching students how to take action after they’ve created a vision and plan for themselves.

Presenter Dr. Keyon L Anderson has encountered and overcome many hardships while seeking a better future. One of his biggest challenges was learning how to live and succeed with Dyslexia, an information processing disorder.

Anderson is an author and completed his Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership at the University of Southern California (USC). He is living his “dream come true” and continues to serve as a role model in helping students with disabilities fight stigma, strengthen relationships and be involved in their individualized education program (IEP).

This webinar is free for all participants.
