The Special Education Department is proud to partner with several community organizations that provide support for parents and children with disabilities. In addition, we provide parenting classes to help parents learn additional strategies for dealing with children's challenging behaviors.

The Children's Advocacy Center is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from several disciplines meet to discuss and make decisions about the investigation, treatment and prosecution of child abuse cases. The CAC benefits the community by providing better immediate follow-up to child abuse reports, more efficient medical and mental health referrals, reduction in the number of child victim interviews, increased successful prosecution and consistent support for child victims and their supportive adults.
