The Special Education Spotlight – April 2021

For more than 50 years, individuals, schools and organizations across the globe have
celebrated the month of April as “Autism Awareness Month” with events to educate the
public and raise awareness. The goal has always been to build a more inclusive society
where individuals with autism can live fully through connection and acceptance. As we
focus our attention on this important cause, our PTA Special Education Committee is
sharing additional autism resources, (including support groups, workshops, webinars and
more), in our monthly update of information on the OES Special Education website.
CLICK HERE to access our OES Special Education website page to find the most current
update of important Special Education information, (most of which is beneficial to ALL
families!); and be sure to visit our OES PTA website for new and ongoing information
regarding Special Education issues and offerings.

If you are new to OES, seek additional information about Special Education and wish to
establish connections with others at our school; or if you are interested in joining our
committee, (all are welcome!), we encourage you contact our Special Education Liaisons,
Andrea Zuppas and Maren Wood at special.education@oaktonpta.net.
