Educational Programming: This year we are hosting four speakers throughout the year.  These meetings will consist of a presentation by an educational program consisting of a presentation by a “topic expert”.  We try to have time after the presentation for questions/discussion.  Speakers and topics are shown on our Calendar and described in greater detail on our Meetings and Events pages as information becomes available.  Meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of the Month for the following months: September, November, February and April.  These events take place in the LRC of Park Jr. High (333 N. Park Rd., La Grange IL) at 7:00 PM.
RAiSE Parent Network: The Parent Network is an adjunct branch of RAiSE that will host two gatherings this year for parents (check our calendar for exact dates and times).  This group is designed to provide parents and families of children and adolescents with special needs and learning disabilities with additional opportunities to meet for informal networking.  These meetings will allow us, as parents and caregivers, to talk to one another, share resources and offer mutual support. Parent Network Meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of October and March and will take place in the Community Room of the LaGrange Park library (555 N. La Grange Road, La Grange Park IL).
Other Activities: In addition, we meet periodically with the Special Education administrative staff of District 102, attend meetings of the Board of Education, and participate in District groups and focus groups that pertain to special education.
