October brings Baltimore’s Child’s annual Education Issue. A directory of Private, Parochial and Charter Schools is featured this month to bring you the information you need to decide which school is a good choice for your child.
Don’t worry! We haven’t forgotten about family fun for the fall so we have a huge listing of Fall Festivals and Halloween Happenings featured too!
That’s not all! If your child is being bullied, you’ll want to read our Family Matters column this month titled Triumphing Over Bullying. Should you be entertaining your infant or toddler with your cell phone or tablet? Find out in the B’More Healthy column. Need help sending your child to one of those schools listed in our directory? Our Educational Exchange column this month may help families of African-American students find a way to pay private school tuition. WBAL TV’s anchorwoman Lisa Robinson is being driven crazy! Find out who’s to blame.
Of course there’s more. Pick up a copy when you’re out and about or simply click to read this issue online.

Click to Read A Special Edition 2014-2015 online
A Special Edition 2014-15 is a compilation of articles and resources for parents in the Baltimore metro area who are raising children with special needs. Coordinated and produced by Baltimore's Child, this year's A Special Edition includes articles covering topics of general interest, from getting a diagnosis, to being a successful advocate in IEP team meetings, to finding support among peers, to managing stress. It also provides detailed listings of resources including recreation and fun programs, camps, schools, and local support groups, along with information relating to specific disabilities.
In addition, Baltimore's Child invited local services and organizations that work with children with special needs and their families to participate in a special advertising opportunity allowing them to tell their stories in their own words in A Special Edition. We’ve noted A Special Advertising Section at the top of each of those pages. The services provided by these programs and practitioners act as a directory in and of themselves.
We hope you find the information in A Special Edition 2014-15 helpful. Please direct feedback and comments to Joanne@BaltimoresChild.com.
