ON MARCH 6 This month, special guest Jeanne Taylor, past chair of the MCCPTA Special Education Committee (2008 - 2018) will join us to tell us about current proposed legislation in the Maryland state legislature that will help level the playing field in special education due process hearings by shifting the burden of proof from families to the schools. 

Come and ask your questions about how burden of proof affects the IEP process and ultimately your children and see what you can do to support passage of this important legislation. 

This is a discussion group for MoCo parents/guardians of autistic students who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), hosted by the xMinds BIPOC Outreach Committee. Daria Hall, chair of the Committee will facilitate. Guest speakers are often invited to provide information of interest to parents of autistic children. Individuals who are not BIPOC are always welcome to join our discussion group when we have a guest speaker.

Take a break from your busy schedule!  Put your feet up, click your link, and take this opportunity to chat, connect, and share experiences with other parents in the BIPOC community.
