Parents Learn about Community Groups, Request Afterschool Activities at SWBOCES SEPTA Meeting
At the SWBOCES Special Education Parent Teacher Association’s Back to School Coffee, parents learned about services that local community organizations offer and spoke with administrators about their interest in afterschool programs and a prom.
Groups that provide services and assistance to families attended the morning and evening sessions Oct. 3, including Pegasus, a therapeutic riding farm in Southeast; the Arc Westchester; and Tobii Dynavox, which provides devices to help children communicate by touch and sight. The Music Conservatory of Westchester, Shames JCC on the Hudson and the Guidance Center of Westchester attended the evening session and talked about their recreational and support services.
“We all need the support services and to find out what is available for our kids,” said Marcela Stern, a SWBOCES parent and SEPTA board member.
