The GA Children's Network is an exciting disability list serv in GA bridging parents and grandparents of special needs children together with other parents, advocates, professionals, service providers and community organizations. Parents, advocates, special education attorneys and professionals are members of the list and will offer support and sound advice. Information shared: disability info, BCW (Babies Can't Wait), SST, Spec. Ed. and Civil Rights (ADA, IDEIA, 504), appropriate medical care, and other such issues. This support is provided in an unbiased, safe forum moderated by parents of children with special needs.
This list will also be used to disseminate: disability and advocacy information, various support group meeting notices, local/national disability organization info, research, and misc. articles.
State and local educational agency personnel and government employees are not permitted to join this list as it would be a conflict of interest. We have chosen to restrict our membership and therefore require a confidentiality agreement from each member, which will be e-mailed when you subscribe. All members must fill out the application.
