Please accept my most heartfelt thanks and appreciation for coming to speak to the Temple school psychology students! Once again, you have “made” the class! I simple cannot emphasize enough how critical you and the PEAC organization are in explaining not only parent perspective, but how to incorporate parent expertise into educational decision-making. You demonstrate the concept of equally valued expertise (not equal expertise) in a collaborative rather than adversarial relationship.

…parents who attended left feeling so much more secure about their options and the tools that are at their disposal when helping their children work towards their most independent life possible….

I am hopeful that in the future we will be able to join with the parents of students with special education needs from other ASPIRA schools so that all of our families are able to learn and grow together. That is one of the ways we can help ensure the students get the most out of everyday.
