BR-SEPAC Meeting

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) will be holding a meeting for the 2012-2013 school year on Tuesday, February 12th at 6:30 pm. The meeting will consist of a quick update, followed by a lecture at 7 pm titled, All Roads Lead to Self-Regulation: Understanding How Medication Can Work With Parents, Schools, and Therapy to Help Children Succeed. The lecture will be done by Dr. Roger Pottanat. This talk will focus on when and how medications can be incorporated into mental health treatment to enable children to overcome their psychiatric challenges, thus steering them towards a more positive developmental path. 

The meeting will be held at the Bridgewater-Raynham High School Lecture Hall (second floor) located at 415 Center Street, Bridgewater, MA. The BR-SEPAC is made up of parents that represent about 850 children with special needs within the Bridgewater-Raynham School district. The BR-SEPAC works collaboratively with the Bridgewater-Raynham Public Schools and Bridgewater-Raynham School Committee to provide support and information for parents, school personnel, and the community about disabilities and the special education process. 

The Bridgewater-Raynham SEPAC accomplishes this through regular meetings, workshops, presentations, and special events. The meeting is free and open to all. For more information visit our website: brsepac.org or email sbenjamin@brsepac.org.
