batavia special education parent network

DETAILS: BSPN's primary goal is to create a support network for parents of special-education students. Any parent can benefit from the exchange of ideas and information with other parents and school personnel. Parents of special-needs children also have to manage Individualized Education Plans, 504 Plans, therapies, and medical procedures that complicate the already difficult job of parenting. As parents of children with special needs ourselves, and as personnel who work with and care about special needs children in school, we can help by sharing information and providing mentoring to parents who need it. We regularly host informal coffee chats to allow parents to meet and share experiences and information.
