The Orange Public Schools Special Education Parent Group is a state mandated group established to assist parents, guardians and caregivers in the Orange Township community with support, information and resources in an effort to educate, empower and inspire families caring for a student with special needs. Our goal is to help families of children with special needs be victorious over their unique challenges.
Our emphasis is on:
Sharing – encourage dialogue and offer families the opportunity to network in order to gain knowledge and strength through shared experiences.
Support – offer valuable resources to make activities and guidance accessible
Education – provide information in areas of interest and concern through printed and online media as well as organized information sessions.
Community Awareness – organize annual projects tying into the community in an effort to educate and bring forth tolerance and understanding of our children and adults with special needs.
Meetings are informative and may often be informal; yet provide a safe and comfortable environment for all attending. We encourage all to participate and offer input as this is crucial to meeting the needs of OUR children.
