Seattle Special Education PTSA is thrilled to have both new and returning members.
We have a specific fundraising ask underway to support a new guide on special education. It's written by families and for families. We need $15,000- $20,000 to translate it into the top 8 languages in the Seattle school district and then print copies for distribution.
Your donation will make a difference!
We assist families of students with disabilities as they navigate the education system.
We build bridges between the general and special education communities in order to bring increased educational resources and opportunities for all students.
We partner with parents and educators as we advocate for improvements in the special education system.
