Parents of Children with Special Needs Meetup: Get to Know SPED*NET Wilton
Program Type:Special Programs & Outreach
Eve Kessler Esq., Executive Director and Co-Founder of SPED*NET Wilton, will share an overview of how SPED*NET Wilton got started, what the organization does, and what programs and resources SPED*NET Wilton offers for families of children with special needs or disabilities.

SPED*NET, Special Education Network of Wilton, Ltd., is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping parents of children with special needs become their children’s best advocates throughout the special services process and the transition to college, employment or other post-secondary pursuits. We serve parents of children who have been diagnosed with a disability and receive services through an IEP (under IDEA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or a Section 504 Plan (under the Rehabilitation Act), who are newly diagnosed, or who are struggling and have yet to be diagnosed.
