Arc of Westchester knows that the complex world of transition planning for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities can be frustrating. We're here to help. With the support and guidance of Arc of Westchester's Navigation Team, this new video series has been created by parents for parents. Our hope is that by breaking the transition process down into small, sequential steps, you will feel informed, empowered and able to connect your child to the important adult services they will need to live a full and happy life within their community.
The Pleasantville Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is a district-wide Parent Teacher Association organized for the specific purpose of providing information and support to parents and caregivers of children with special needs, including those with 504 plans or IEP's, receiving RTI or general building level support. Our mission is to create a true sense of community for all families of children with disabilities, from EI and CPSE through high school to age 21. SEPTA sponsors speakers, parent gatherings, library resources and educational programs in an effort to create a true parent support, community network.
Working in conjunction with the Pleasantville Special Education PTA, as well as with local professionals in the field, this collection of informal interviews, professional presentations and school district workshops has been created to provide important tips and resources to parents and educators who live and work with children who have special education needs. Additional reference materials on these topics is also available in the main branch of the Mt. Pleasant Public Library in the Pleasantville SEPTA Parenting Collection.
