Happy Fall!  On behalf of the NPSELAC, I would like to invite you and your staff to our upcoming NPSELAC meeting on Wednesday, November 6th at 6:30 pm at Birchwood’s Middle School Library. During this meeting, we will be serving refreshments while Noah Pike of NAMI of RI  presents “Parents and Teachers as  Allies”.  The idea behind the program is to introduce teachers and parents to different mental illnesses and the stigma surrounding them. The hope is that both parties will work together in recognizing symptoms which can lead to early intervention. A personal account of a young person who deals with mental illness is the crux of the program.
We look forward to having you take part in this very informational meeting! Thanks again for your support of our North Providence Special Education Local Advisory Committee.
 
All my best,
Donna Alqassar
NPSELAC Chair
