The Special Needs Advisory Council, which is Nantucket’s state-mandated Parent Advisory Council (PAC), is now under the leadership of parent Heidi Fee. Every school district in MA is required to have a PAC to provide a parent voice in local special education matters. Heidi hopes to schedule public meetings, where the first portion will serve as a forum for information sharing and Q&A with Nancy Miller, NPS Special Services Director, or other pertinent personnel; and the second part of the meeting will be conducted as a parent support group with facilitator Amy Ravitz, a parent and advocate. We will help Heidi promote these important forums, so please stay tuned for more information!
To RSVP and for more information, please contact Kim Horyn, Director, Nantucket Autism Speaks Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 646-341-3043.
