Project TRAIN (Training, Readiness and Inclusion Network): This is a new committee being launched by incoming HBA President Alistair Dawson as part of his initiative to support and help those with special needs. The committee will develop and distribute training materials for employers to assist them in hiring and retaining individuals with special needs or other cognitive disorders. Committee members also will recruit law firms, corporate legal departments and companies to join the Network and look for opportunities to hire special individuals.
The Friday, November 10 CLE, “Advocating for Children with Special Education Needs,” sponsored by Houston Volunteer Lawyers, was a success! Thank you to everyone who participated!
