With all the new changes to education, it can be difficult to keep track of what is available. Here is a short list of what we are seeing happening in education this year- complete with HSC members who are providing support in those areas. As we head into a new school year, it is important to remember that we have to put our health and family before the requirements of education. I hope that this list of resources helps you find the best course of action for your family!
