We are pleased to announce that we are now set-up for the REMIND TEXT System. Any parent, SEPAC Member, etc. can sign-up to receive a REMIND TEXT for our meetings and information by:

TEXT ADDRESS:  81010

Then texting the “words:”  @kkg3399

It will also ask if you want the REMIND APP as well, but that is NOT necessary to receive text messages to your cell phone. The purpose of the REMIND APP is merely to keep all your REMIND Texts from the District in the same place on your cell phone.

“My Autism,” – by George. A 9 year old makes a video to explain his autism to others.

   “Most of the time I can make eye contact with you when you speak to me. That wasn’t always the case. Like a lot of other kids with autism I might not have been looking, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t listening.”

“Speaking of listening, I can hear and see a lot of things and sounds all at the same time which sometimes makes it hard to focus on any one sound or thought. That’s why it may take a little more time to answer you when you ask me a question.”
