Concord/Concord-Carlisle SEPAC October 2018

October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month

As we take the time to bring awareness to the 1 in 5 students with dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, among other learning disabilities, we also would like to recognize the special educators who work with these students everyday.

Convening the Team

Now that the your child has settled into school, it's a good time to check in with them and your team to see how it's going. Staying On Top of Your Child's IEP takes time and effort. If you have questions, concerns, or just need to check in to get everyone's perspective, you have the right to request a team meeting at anytime during the year.
