    PARENT TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR YOUR CHILD’S ANNUAL REVIEW MEETING 

     

    Dear SEPTA Members and Friends, 

    As CSE/504/Annual Review season is upon us, we wanted to circulate some parent tips that SEPTA has compiled; we hope you find them useful when preparing for your child’s annual review.  This year we have added resources on modifications and adaptations – an area we find parents have a lot of questions.

    SEPTA

    The Hastings-on-Hudson SEPTA is a unit of the New York State PTA organization with local chapters that focus on supporting families and children, especially those with any kind of special need.

    The Organization also exists to be a source of information on research and progress in the field of special education and learning disabilities. SEPTA is a volunteer-driven organization that uses 100% of all donations for programming and services.

    Goals are:

    • Supporting the community via educational workshops and speakers relevant to the entire school population.

    • Providing information through publications such as the Resource Guide, videos and books on special needs issues made available through the Hillside school library, and an online list-serve for SEPTA members.

    • Working together with the school system to ensure the best educational experience possible for all children in the school. Research has shown that excellence in special education programming benefits the entire student population

    Membership is open to all parents, family members, guardians, teachers and professionals with an interest in the education and well being of children with special needs.
