IDD Awareness Month2.png

Each March, we have a special chance to celebrate and uplift people with disabilities across our community and highlight their diverse experiences. This month is an important opportunity for our network to spread awareness of our shared humanity, the many ways people with developmental disabilities enrich their communities, and the challenges we still face to realizing a truly inclusive society.

Modern Education Center

Special Education Advocacy

Families and educators living in rural areas of Mississippi are offered free access to a Special Education Advocacy Curriculum

This opportunity is for families and educators living in rural areas in Mississippi to gain free access to an Arc@School Special Education Advocacy Curriculum. CoBank is funding 30 accounts for folks in Mississippi. The curriculum, which normally costs $99 for access, is designed to provide the basic information that families, educators, and non-attorney advocates need to support students and families from birth through age 21 in the special education system. Once the survey is filled out, an account will be made and the login information will be sent directly to you.
