Come join the Westfield Special Education Community for an evening of education and insightful conversation on Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 7:30 p.m., at the Edison Intermediate School Library, located at 800 Rahway Ave. in Westfield, NJ. 

Puberty is a time of growth and change for all children. A child with special needs will present unique challenges during this time of transition. How can we give our children the independence they crave while keeping them safe? How do we coach and empower our children during this time of physical, emotional, and social changes?

This presentation will provide guidance to parents, teachers, and caregivers to aid your child in knowing what to expect and how to support your child during this journey to independence. The role of social media and emotional turmoil will also be highlighted.
