Special Education PTAs (or SEPTAs) are designed to help parents advocate for
special needs children. It is a place for parents and teachers to exchange
information on various programs, funding, ever-changing state and federal
laws and to support each other on the many problems of adjustment, growth
and development our members face. SEPTA has regular meetings just like any
other PTA, with speakers to run lectures or workshops on many pressing
issues for our children.
Membership is not restricted to parents/teachers/students enrolled in
special education programs or receiving special services. Like all PTAs, it
is open to any interested parent, teacher, student, administrator or person
who cares about Special Education issues and advocacy.
