BR-SEPAC and The Bridge Center


The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) and The Bridge Center will be holding a meeting for the 2014-2015 school year on Tuesday, January 20th at 6:30 pm. Following the meeting, at 7 pm there will be a lecture titled, No Sibling Left Behind. The presentors will be Hillary Dunn and Kathleen Amaral. This presentation is geared to parents of young siblings and professionals as well. The overall sibling experience (what it’s like for siblings growing up with a brother/sister with a disability), strategies to support siblings, current trends in sibling research, and the growing sibling movement will be addressed. The meeting will be held at The Bridge Center located at 470 Pine St., Bridgewater, MA. 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. The Bridgewater-Raynham SEPAC accomplishes this through regular meetings, workshops, presentations, and special events. The meeting is free and open to all.
