• receives support in a resource room; or
• receives services such as speech & language therapy or occupational therapy; or

  We invite you to attend our meetings!
In addition to providing support, our meetings also enable us to discuss ways we can ensure that the school system meets our children’s special needs. Our meetings feature speakers from the Scarsdale School District as well as noted professionals in the fields of learning disabilities, psychology, and medicine.
