Parent University - Sept. 27

In just two weeks the first Parent University program of the Family Care Project, a part of the McHenry County Mental Health Board, will be held at McHenry County College.

That's Saturday, September 27, 2008.

The purpose? "Strengthening communication and collaboration among parents, students, and educators to improve educational experiences and outcomes for all."

Are you the parent of a child with special needs? You can count on getting your money's worth! The cost? $25.00, and that includes lunch!

Registration, light breakfast and resource tables are available at 8:00AM in the MCC Conference Center, Crystal Lake, Ill. Advance registration is strongly recommended and will be appreciated for an accurate meal count.

Program starts at 9:00AM. You have a choice of morning sessions; pick from one of five.

Lunch at 12:05 with an entertaining presentation by the Shut up Sisters. Those who have seen/heard the Shut Up Sisters say they are not to be missed!

The afternoon session (1:15-2:45) will be a facilitated discussion among parents and educators to develop more effective communication.

To register, email Michelle LaLuz at or call her at 815.788.4386
