Only supports parents if the child wants inclusion. Otherwise, they don't support you at all. They also will not attend IEP meetings.

Make them support everyone, not just those who want inclusion. Inclusion is not for all.

There are so many reasons why I believe the Peal Center should be selected he Guidestar $5,000 non-profit sweepstakes. I loved the Peal Center Parent Leadership Class which gave me the confidence and knowledge to become the Cochair Parent of the Bucks County Right to Educate Local Task Force. They teach you how to be effective advocate for your child as well as the importance of improving the system (i.e. education, healthcare, work force) for the next child. Peal host a conference every year that focus on the rights of children with disabilities. The conference is filled with wonderful speakers and an excellent resource fair as well a time to relax and socialize with other parents who “get it.” Most importantly, when ever you need words of encouragement you can always call for support!
