Some friendly reminders to prepare for summer training:


  *   Connect with your RR and your student's IEP team to see how HKNC can help meet IEP goals this summer.
  *   HKNC Programs are first come first serve and they may fill up quickly.
  *   Approval for state funding may take time; so if interested in a summer program, be sure to include VR in the dialog ASAP.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me or my assistant Taryn Hill (Taryn.Hill at hknc.org<mailto:Taryn.Hill at hknc.org>) with any additional questions!
