Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I hope you and your kids are getting into a routine after what is always a busy transitional time. There seem to be a lot of big emotions in my house leading up to and during the first week of school! As kids and families settle in for what I hope is a productive and happy year, I found some interesting reads that may address a few challenges that may come up this fall. I hope there are helpful ideas and inspiration in these articles for you, just as there were for me.

The Family and School Support Team has undergone a leadership change, so for the time being, Mrs. Murray and I haven't scheduled any upcoming talks or presentations. We hope to bring knowledgeable speakers, helpful and pertinent information, and other solid resources and tools to the Baldwin community, and specifically special needs families very soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your special needs child and his or her education at Baldwin, feel free to reach out to me through this site!
