How do we achieve this?

Inform

  • Provide statewide legislative information as it relates to special education

Support

Provide opportunities for parents and teachers to share experiences and resources.

SEPTA is your place for the sharing of special needs resources and ideas.  We believe that there are many great resources and ideas out there that really need to be shared so that they can be used for children with special needs.

We believe that Special Education will be lifted greatly if we all have a desire to share and build these resources for all to use.
