BR-SEPAC Meeting

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) will be holding a meeting for the 2013-2014 school year on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30 pm.  Following the meeting, at 7 pm there will be a lecture titled, Why Assistive Technology? This workshop will describe what Assistive Technology includes, and provide an overview of how technology based tools and strategies allow students with a wide range of learning needs and profiles to access the curriculum more efficiently, and with increased independence. The workshop will outline how services are accessed and shed light on how assistive technology should be reflected in the IEP, and integrated within an existing program. The workshop will provide a glimpse of available technologies and consider participants' questions. The meeting will be held at the Bridgewater-Raynham High School Library Computer Lab (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.
