Funds raised will be used to purchase sensor items for our sensory backpack project to provide sensory backpacks in all of our schools. This was a great collaboration.

UPCOMING EVENTS


OCTOBER 20 (10:30 AM – 3:30 PM)
Get on Board Skateboarding Event – Ambler Skateboarding Academy
SPEAC and Get on Board are teaming up to provide a skateboarding program designed to teach children with disabilities the joys and benefits of skateboarding.  1:1 lessons are provided free. This event will be held in doors at the Ambler Skateboarding Academy (300 Brookside Drive, Unit C, building 19. Enter through gate D). Please contact Karen Salomon at ksal@comcast.net for more information.  Space is limited. Reservations required.

NOVEMBER 3 (2:00 PM – 6:00 PM)
Sensory Break Room hosted by SPEAC at the UD Township Tri-Centennial Event – UD Township Building (Room TBA)
Some events may be overstimulating to children with special needs for variety of reasons. A sensory break room provides a calming place for children to go to for a break. Our goal is to provide parents an opportunity to have their child participate in community events with a quiet space when a break is needed.

A forum in our community for parents and caregivers of a child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to make connections and get support.  Share your successes, ideas, and concerns with other parents.

Sometimes we all need a little support! If you are new or experienced within the district and want to connect with another parent who has a child with similar needs to yours, we can help! 

We invite all parents and educators to visit our website.  If you have websites or resources you would like to share, please email us and we will consider adding your information to our site. 

If you found something cool that helps your child, please share it with us.

SPEAC is a district wide organization. Our members represent children with special needs throughout all the schools within the Upper Dublin School District.

The Special Education Advisory Council of Upper Dublin is a non-profit parent organization.  We support learning for all students and seek to ensure the needs of special education students are continuously identified and effectively addressed so that these students are given the opportunity to participate fully in the general education classroom. We provide education, information, support and resources to parents, teachers, school administration, and the community to increase awareness of the needs of these students.

Nothing
is as important as our children and their future!
