Jackson School Parent Forum

Preparing and Planning for Post School options

The Brimbank/Melton LLEN in partnership with Jackson School hosted a Parent Forum on Tuesday 6 May 2014.  The aim of the forum was to inform parents and provide them with an overview of the post school options for their children once they leave Jackson School.  Speakers from the Banksia Ambassadors program, Department of Human Services, Matchworks (Disability Employment Services), Victoria University and the YMCA provided information and an insight into the services they provided in assisting young people with a disability once they leave school.

The feedback from the parents that attended the forum was very positive indicating that they would like follow up sessions to investigate the services in more detail.
