SPEED: Special Education, Engagement, and Development

This summer, a group of families came together to find ways to support and learn from each other. Our first meeting, held in October, allowed families to share topics and ideas that were of interest for this school year.

Out of the meeting, came the acronym SPEED: special education, engagement and development.
