A message from the MCCPTA Special Education Committee

There were nearly 100 participants at the MCCPTA Special Education Committee webinar that discussed options for parents of students with IEPs who have regressed or experienced learning loss and may have missed IEP services during virtual learning. It is an important topic that has been discussed throughout the pandemic with many parents wanting answers. We hosted Nicole Joseph, an education attorney to speak on what parents can do to help their children with disabilities with recovery at this time. 

There have been many requests for the recording of the webinar so we are providing it to you share with your school communities.
