SPECIAL PARENTS OF EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN (SPEC), a group founded and run by parents of children with special needs, invites you to come and share with other parents the triumphs and challenges of raising a child with special needs. SPEC's purpose is to provide support and information. We meet monthly during the school year and welcome parents and caregivers of children of all ages and types of needs. We welcome back the many folks who continue to attend, and we love newcomers!
At this first meeting of 2009, we will get together to greet new parents and decide on a list of topics for the next few monthly meetings. Please bring your ideas and questions!
No RSVP is necessary. Light refreshments will be served. Parking is available at the lot behind Top of the Hill Plaza, entrance on Bethlehem Pike. The Library is close to the terminus of the 23, L and 94 buses and the final stops of the R8 and R7 train lines. Sorry, there is no child care at the meetings and we can not offer child care or transportation reimbursement. For more information, directions, to volunteer, offer to bring refreshments, or to get on the mailing list, call Jean at 215-913-9027 or email JFMcCou@aol.com. Please send an email to let us know if you prefer NOT to receive our mailings or emails, or if you are willing to receive the email version only.
