A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD PRESIDENT

To our friends and supporters:

During this difficult and uncertain time, please be assured that Student Advocacy continues to advocate for children. Although they are not physically in school, learning continues. It just looks very different. We are responding with new and creative solutions to the challenges they now face. 

The fact is, remote learning is particularly hard on youths with disabilities. At school, they may work in quiet, well-staffed, small group settings. Special seating and eye contact with the instructor may help them remain engaged. They may have access to their school’s learning center. Isolated at home, they have none of the structure so crucial to their success, all of the distractions, and no time to adapt.

Our advocates are committed to ensuring that these vulnerable students continue to learn, rather than fall through the cracks. The community needs our services now more than ever.

If you’d like more information on how we’re addressing evolving student needs, please feel free to reach out to me at jbernstein@studentadvocacy.net.

Please be safe and take good care.

With warm regards,

Jill Bernstein
Board President
