Military Life is Tough, School Shouldn’t Have to be
Military children with special needs face greater obstacles during Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and school transitions than their peers. When parents have the right tools to advocate for their special needs child, the child can put their best foot forward in their new location, school, and community.
We Can Help
Parents of eligible military-connected children with disabilities can apply to access a free, special education curriculum that will empower them to be their child’s best advocate. The curriculum is produced by the Arc, a national, community-based organization that advocates for people with disabilities.
Awardees will be notified by email.
