The Albany Disability Squad offers a monthly Learning Differences Family Support group. This peer-to-peer group gives families a way to connect with each other through their shared experiences with students with disabilities, share information, and create a community for both families and students who can feel left out. Please see our calendar for upcoming dates.
The Squad is also exploring ways for families to serve as a resource for each other in navigating the complicated Special Education system, including supporting each other (though not providing any legal advice) at IEP meetings. If you are interested in serving as a Resource Parent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
