Parent University

NPN's Parent University Speaker Series brings you pertinent information on parenting and lifestyle issues. Each event will not only provide interaction with a professional on the topic of the day, but also a chance to connect with and learn from other parents. Parent University is one of the many ways NPN facilitates interaction among our member parents while providing you with educational resources. If you have an idea for a future speaker/session, please contact us at programdir@npnparents.org

An E-Ticket is required to attend all Parent University Speaker Series events - 1 adult per each E-ticket.

If your child has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and you have found yourself wondering if the IEP actuallly meets your child's needs, then this live webinar is for you! Special education advocate Mo Buti joins us for the second installment of NPN's IEP series with My IEP: Red Flags. You will learn about some possible "red flags," learn how to identify them and then what to do to resolve these concerns in a proactive way.

This live webinar will help you address what to do when there is:

*  No homework

*  Feedback on benchmarks

*  Lack of communication

*  And, much more!

And you will be able to ask questions!

Meet the Co-Chairs

Didi Lewis Didi joined NPN in 2010 while researching school options for her son and seeking support from other working moms. When her daughter came along the following year, her fondness for NPN, its activity-packed event calendar, and its active discussion board grew. With a JD and certificate in Family Law from DePaul College of Law, her dedication to the local parent community in her downtown neighborhood, and her passion for advocating family life in the big city (she’s also a proud CPS grad), Didi happily joined the NPN staff in 2013. As School Choice, Programming and Outreach Manager, Didi is excited about helping Chicago parents learn about educational options within the city and discover all of the amazing benefits NPN has to offer for new and growing urban families. After spending her entire life as a north-sider, Didi now lives in the South Loop with her south-sider husband Rod and their city kids, RJ and Rio.
