Our founding documents define the students we advocate for broadly - including students in Special Education (the current legal term), 504 plans and more, identified or not. "A student with special needs is any student who needs additional support, accommodations, and/or intervention in order to be successful in their social and learning environment."
7. Do you like the term "Special Needs" or do you prefer some other terminology? No single term pleases everyone but if there was a term that would help you find our PTA or clearly identify a focus on advocacy, inclusion, belonging and growth, note that as well.
Effecting change requires sharing our stories in a relatable manner and asking meaningful questions.
8. Did you know that October is Disabilities History Month in Washington? Washington State Law says, "Annually, during the month of October, each public school shall conduct or promote educational activities that provide instruction, awareness, and understanding of disability history and people with disabilities. The activities may include, but not be limited to, school assemblies or guest speaker presentations."
