Special Education Group

2019-2020 Special Education Chair: Laurel Spaeth, special.education@lwptsa.net

The Lake Washington PTSA Special Education Group (formerly Special Needs Group) is made up of Lake Washington School District community members whose students receive special services (IEPs) and accommodations (504s) as well as interested staff and students. The group meets every school month except for December and June. We hear from speakers, have an extensive lending library, learn about resources in the community, network with other parents and keep updated on district and PTSA issues affecting children with disabilities.
