Dear PTA leaders,
The Special Education Inclusion Committee (SEIC) is proud to be a part of the Wake PTA Council. While we provide families with information and tools to support their child’s educational needs, we also offer support to PTAs so that their programs and events are inclusive of all children and their families.
WHO we are: Our volunteers and leaders are made up of parents throughout Wake County. Each of us has a child currently attended a WCPSS school who receives Special Education Services either in a separate setting or with support in matriculation.
WHY we exist: Our mission is to create a network of parents, educators, and administrators who will work cooperatively and constructively to meet the needs of all students receiving special education services in the most integrated environment, with appropriate supports in place, to ensure that the students will learn and be valued members of their school community.
IDEAS for including all students in your PTA events and programs.
SUPPORT to groups who wish to offer workshops on special education topics.
A GREAT WAY TO START: As you begin the new school you, you may consider hosting a Meet and Greet for Special Needs Families at your school. Ideas for this event can be found at: http://wake-seic.org/pta-inclusion-supports. Upcoming communication from the SEIC will include ideas for Disability Awareness Month (October).
Thank you! We appreciate your time and the commitment you have made to support our schools and families.
