Posted by Erica Noonan, Globe West May 25, 2007 09:44 AM


Mansfield mom and disability educator Kim Piro, founder of The Jamie Fund and ICARE, will speak in Framingham on June 6.

Her talk, titled ``Disability Awareness Through Reading'' will discuss how schools can use books and classroom discussion to educate children about their classmates with special needs.

Piro, who has a daughter with autism, has worked in the Mansfield schools since 2002 teaching kids about challenges faced by their peers with the disorder.

The talk is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Criterion Middlesex Early Intervention Center, 651 Franklin St., Framingham.
