Parent & Family Programs
SAS Parent Network
The Student Access Services (SAS) Parent Support Network was founded by a Hofstra parent and is organized by the Office of Parent and Family Programs. The Network serves parents and families of Hofstra students with disabilities and organizes a workshop each semester. The mission of the Network is to support and educate families on how to guide and mentor their students with disabilities on the college level. The Office of Parent and Family Programs collaborates with the Office of Student Access Services to provide speakers and the content for the workshops.
In addition, the Network provides parents an opportunity to connect to each other and share experiences and advice. Since the students with disabilities face specific challenges in addition to common issues all students face when transitioning from high school to college, Hofstra University wants to provide information, guidance and support to their parents in their own transition in parenting their children.
The SAS Parent Support Network events are announced in the Family Link e-newsletter. You may subscribe here. For more information, please email Office of Parent and Family Programs at parents[at]hofstra.edu or call 516-463-4698, or Prof. Mary Banahan at Mary.K.Banahan[at]hofstra.edu.
