Connecticut Shoreline Moms Form A Coalition To Help Their Special Needs Kids

In the shoreline towns of Madison and Guilford parents of children who are on the autism spectrum or who have special needs have formed a group to help them move forward in uncharted  waters. They’re part of SEPTO or Special Education Parent Teacher Organization. Their goes is to help their kids thrive and become independent members of society. We spent some time with seven Moms, a lawmaker with a special needs grandchild… and the director of special education in Madison to see how SEPTO works. The first SEPTO in the state was formed in 2010 in greater Bristol. If you don’t have a SEPTO chapter in your town, you might think about forming one.
