Happy Special Education Day!

Dear Friends,

This year marks the 7th anniversary of Special Education Day!!

MSAAFinc takes this day to honor progress and celebrate students with disabilities--and their strong parents, amazing teachers and schools. Our hats go off to you!!

Special Education Day began in 2005. That year marked the 30th anniversary of the IDEA--the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Where are we now on providing access to education for all children, including children with disabilities? Do you feel we have come a long way from when President Gerald Ford signed the ground-breaking legislation?

We have come a long way but we still have a long way to go. I am thankful and grateful everyday for IDEA. And for the strong community that stands behind it!

Thank you!!
The MSAAFinc
