Parents of Special Needs kids are among the most pro-active of all. Come on down to our meeting and help yourself learn how to help your child. All are welcome.
On Tuesday, November 18, 2014 from 7 – 9 pm, the West Essex SEPAC is hosting a technology workshop on educational apps and productivity tools for students. This workshop is open to all students and parents – special ed and general ed.
This is a very neat little video of a part of a special concert to benefit The Bridge School in Hillsborough, California. The School serves severely physically disabled and speech impaired students and was founded by Pegi and Neil Young, along with some others. They have big fundraising concerts there each year for the school and this year one of the highlights was a little reunion of Temple of The Dog playing their hit “Hunger Strike.”
The music is great, but what is the best thing is getting to watch all the kids, the students, their parents, relatives and caregivers sing, bounce and sway along to the song. Have a happy look and listen below. 🙂
