The Committee will act as a resource for parents of students in special education or those receiving special services/support by facilitating information sharing and making parents aware of both U-46 and outside community programs and resources available for their special needs child. The Committee also works to provide opportunities for parent engagement.
For the 2016/17 school year, the Committee will host and facilitate five informational programs. These programs will consist of topics applicable to all special needs children regardless of age or disability and will be presented by either U-46 personnel or outside experts who provide services to special needs children.

IEP Educational Videos
In 2013, the Committee worked with the U-46 Special Education Department to create an informational video titled “Understanding Your Child’s IEP”, which serves as the foundational video of our Special Education University series. Both English and Spanish versions are available for viewing online. We highly recommend watching the video whether you are new to the IEP process, or are just needing a refresher.
