BR-SEPAC Meeting

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) will be holding a meeting for the 2014-2015 school year on November 4, 2014 at 6:30 pm. Following the meeting, at 7 pm there will be a lecture titled, Behavior and Positive Support Plans. This lecture will be given by Amy Gordon. Everyone displays behaviors, or actions throughout their day. We all have challenges: avoiding anxiety provoking situations or trying to get a parent’s attention while they are on the phone….sometimes, when we don’t feel well, we can snap easily at people, or if a child really wants that pack of gum in the grocery aisle…the difference is, some of us display challenging behaviors that interfere with our quality of life. Amy Gordon, M.Ed., Executive Director from Second Nature Social Skills will share strategies and tips on how to help people to have expected actions during these challenging moments. Childcare will be provided

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.
