This weekend’s Spanish Speaking Conference Was a Success!

This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend the Una Voz Spanish Speaking Conference in San Jose, CA. Providers were invited by the San Andreas Regional Center and encouraged to bring and share information about their organizations with the Spanish speaking community.

This was the first time that Tucci Learning Solutions participated in this conference and our wonderful team members told us that they had a great time talking about our CLM program and services with parents and assistants who stopped at our resource table. We want to extend a special THANK YOU to our CLM Coordinator Guillermo Reyes, for his willingness and enthusiasm to participate during this year’s conference and also to Daniel Juarez for making himself available to help out too. Thank you guys for your incredible work.

January’s Institute: Instituto de Educación Especial del Sur del Condado

This month our South County Region staff had the opportunity to attend the Greenfield Institute Conference once again.

This Institute was held in both Spanish and English for families of children with disabilities and or special needs. During this event, the parents had the opportunity to attend various and informative workshops on services and rights of children with disabilities.

“Cynthia Valencia ran the table very well as always!

About 80-90 parents attended and about 25 kids showed up for childcare where Marlene Ibarra and Grisel Ibarra volunteered their time all day and gave pointers to the honor students who also helped from Greenfield High School. Ismael Mondragon also volunteered his time. Thank you all!

We also had the opportunity to interact with parents and other vendors, who are always personable. We also got a chance to see parents from past Tucci services who are always so appreciative and happy to see us!” – Nancy Kelley, South County Regional Coordinator

Thank you for your hard work and for volunteering your time to help out at this Institute Conference. We couldn’t do it without you all.

TUCCi’s Participation at the Annual San Andreas Summer Festivals

What a great event!!!

It was an honor for Tucci Learning Solutions to be able to support and participate in most of the Festivals hosted by San Andreas Regional Center during this summer 2016. 

The latest one was on Saturday, August 6th at the Tatum’s Garden in Salinas where our wonderful CLM Team Members performed an amazing job with the families who showed up to enjoy a day full of fun and games. It was also really good to be able to share with parents and caregivers about our ABA Services and be able to meet them.

This is what one of our CLM Coordinators for the Monterey Region, Guillermo Reyes, had to say about the event,  “I am very grateful to have been part of this event because I was able to convey information to parents on how Tucci Learning Solutions, Inc operates. In addition, I was able to encourage parents to pursue the needs of their children because education is the KEY to success in life.”

We also want to extend our gratitude to Danielle Jolley, CLM Coordinator for the Santa Cruz County, for helping out at the Festival Events that took place in Morgan Hill and Santa Cruz.

Thank you ALL for helping out during this Special Needs Community event and for your fun and instructive contribution.
