IPUL's E-News: September 20, 2019
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not all everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
We Want Your News!
  If you have news, information or upcoming events in your hometown that are relevant to families who have children with disabilities or special health care needs and would like us to share that information, please email the details to parents@ipulidaho.org for review.

Our program coordinator will then share this via IPUL's social media networks. We are also happy to add events to our calendar for people to find.
We've been busy this week!
We started the week out on the road, doing our short tours to Weiser / Payette and then to Twin Falls / Kimberly.

We had a great time meeting everyone and look forward to more of it in the future!

Here's Joe in Kimberly:

Mindful Minutes
We were very happy to share this group of short videos this week, as staff members of IPUL and their family members were involved in the creation of them.

These are all short, informative clips talking about a different topic intended to help promote understanding and communication between family members.

You can find the full playlist with all the videos by clicking this link:

From Idaho Public Television:
"Mindful Minutes" is a series of vignettes promoting good practices parents can implement to improve their children's education.
