In December, National PTA's Every Child in Focus campaign is centering on the Child with Special Needs.
National PTA's Every Child in Focus is a campaign to strengthen Family Engagement in Schools by celebrating the achievements and reporting the disparities within diverse populations, and sharing resources and advocacy tools to help understand the needs of every child. The campaign is a school-year-long series that provides educators, families and PTAs with the information they need to deepen family engagement in schools through the PTA National Standards for Family-School Partnerships.
National PTA President Otha Thornton will meet with Education Committee members on Capitol Hill to discuss ways to increase support for children with special needs. Visit our Child with Special Needs webpage for information on the unique challenges facing children with special needs and find out how PTAs can better support and improve outcomes for students and families.
