The Arc of Tennessee's Family Engagement Team hosts a monthly networking group for families involved in Special Education across the state of Tennessee. These meetings will take place on the last Tuesday of the month and will cover a variety of topics ranging from early childhood education through transitions to adulthood. We will invite guest speakers and experts to share information with families and listen to your feedback so we can work together to help improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
In July, Alison Gauld, the Low Incidence and Autism Coordinator for the TN Department of Education, will join us to talk about the new Teaching All Students (TAS) Grant that will be implemented at the high school level this coming school year. She will share the goals of this new and excited project and what it will mean for our students. She will also talk about the importance of having high expectations for all of our students so they can best be supported to achieve all of their academic goals.
