Recent reports have brought to light several cases of alleged abuse, mistreatment, and insufficient educational opportunities for children with special needs in Montana public schools.
If your family or children have suffered physical or emotional abuse or have been denied sufficient staff-care or educational opportunities in your public school programs, please stand up and speak out. Many children with special needs cannot advocate for themselves. They need us to advocate for them. Together we can make a difference.
Please, help your MT legislators draft bills to stop the abuse and change the way we serve our children with special needs- for the better. Share your stories and proposed solutions. If you are cautious about protecting identities, anonymity will be respected by fellow parents and citizens leading this action.
*If you live in Lewis and Clark County, please contact the email below as well to find out about testifying before the school board.
