Parents of GCPS students with disabilities are invited to attend the next Balanced Lunch Bunch session- "Connecting Students with Assistive Technology"- which will be presented Tuesday, Oct. 20, 9:30-11 a.m., by Dr. Debra Mastin, assistive technology specialist for Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS). Balanced Lunch Bunch (BLB) is a monthly learning series for families of children with disabilities, presented by the Gwinnett County Parent Mentors in collaboration with GCPS' Special Education Department coordinators. Typically, BLB sessions are held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in Building 200 at the J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center (ISC), located at 437 Old Peachtree Road, NW, in Suwanee. Parent Mentors are parents who work within GCPS' special education department, providing information and support to other families who have children served in special education. The mentors have first-hand knowledge of raising a child with special needs, as they each have a child who is served in the Gwinnett County Public School System.

RSVP for the meeting by contacting Parent Mentor Dawn Albanese by phone at (678) 301-7212 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
