At EPIC, we are committed to empowering families to advocate for the needs of their children and seek reimbursement from the Department of Education for the full cost of our tuition. The origins of this reimbursement process date back to the 1960s, when frustrated parents formed advocacy groups to fight for the right to public education for their children with special needs.
Parent University is a monthly Zoom series during which we empower families with relevant, research-proven best practices for supporting their children at home and beyond. On February 23rd, Head of School and Lead Teacher Katerina Watson facilitated EPIC’s 6th Parent University of the Year, which focused on the topic of Crisis Management and Therapeutic De-escalation.
