We know that Bloomfield SEPAC Members are at different stages in advocating for their children and in gaining more information themselves, so they can help with the challenges and surprises that dealing with Special Education can bring. The following information is mostly for the newbies among us. Of course, you never know when even a parent with some experience in this area, might pick up a tip or be reminded of something useful that has slipped their mind?
Sabemos que los miembros del SEPAC de Bloomfield están en diferentes etapas luchando por sus hijos y obteniendo más información para poder ayudarlos con los desafíos y sorpresas que puede traer tratar con Educación Especial. La siguiente información es sobre todo para los más nuevos entre nosotros. Por supuesto, nunca se sabe cuándo incluso un padre con experiencia en esta área pueda beneficiarse de alguna sugerencia o tal vez algo útil le ha pasado desapercibido?
With grateful thanks to The Center for Parent Information & Special Resources.
