If you would like to connect with other special education / 504 plan / disabled / disability-related families and individuals or find the information you need, that is what I’m trying to build here.

1. Connect

On Wednesdays during the school year (and more), I’m at Ada’s next to the Palo Alto Library at 8:30-ish.

3700 Middlefield Rd, Adjacent to the Library, Palo Alto, CA 94303-4714

You can send me a text or voicemail at anytime:

  • +1.650.539.4884

Or fill out the form below.

(If there is any sort of information, resource, or other -whatever- that you’d like to share, the form is a great way to share it with me – Thank you!)

if there is enough interest, I’ll start some sort of newsletter. Otherwise, I’ll just reach out when there is something that I think you might be interested in or find helpful.

…. and if you aren’t interested, that’s fine too.

If you’ve got anything to add, let me know!
