Special Education Workgroups Forming

This past session, our State Legislature approved a bill (SB 6129) to create an interim workgroup on paraeducator standards, (to report back to the Legislature next session). The DDC is looking for input from parents and other advocates to participate in special education sub-work groups in the following areas:

Cognitive Needs
Assistive Technology
Health/Medical Needs
Behavior Needs
Academic Needs

To ensure broad statewide representation, the sub groups will likely "meet" by phone and/or email. If you're interested in participating, email Donna Patrick and let her know which sub-group you are interested in joining.

Informing Families Building Trust is a collaborative project of the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council and the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Administration.  To learn more about the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council and what we do to help people with disabilities and their families in Washington State, visit our website at http://www.ddc.wa.gov/.
