The half-hour interview was part of a series hosted by Beth Polner Abrahams, an attorney in Nassau County, New York, whose practice is focused on estate, tax, and special needs planning for families, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities. The wide-ranging conversation focused on the laws that protect students with learning and other difficulties in high school and college, steps students and families should take when thinking about college, alternatives to traditional college programs, and the practical issues involved in obtaining accommodations for college exams.

Mrs. Yellin will be appearing at several area schools and libraries in upcoming weeks:
