YOUR  GUIDE  TO  SPECIAL  SERVICES

What an amazing document.
It is the clearest explanation I have
seen— so user-friendly,

Kudos to those who labored

PERSONAL STORIES

“I REALIZED I WAS NOT ALONE”

Testimonials

When I moved to Wilton,
I had a child with special needs,
but had no idea what that really meant.
SPED*NET helped me navigate
the special needs world…
and grow as a parent.

A Parent’s Journey

A Parent’s Journey

“The Launch”

We use the word “Launch” in a variety of contexts— from a spaceship lift off to the startup of a new company and the release of an adult offspring into
the world.

Dropping her son at college 16 years after his autism spectrum diagnosis, a mom wonders: Was he prepared? Had we done enough? Would he be successful and return intact?

College Essays

College Essays

Through their college essays,
teens are able to reflect on the
experiences that have shaped them;
the type of person they hope to
become; and the underlying
keys to their resiliency.
For kids with special needs,
happiness and success often include
giving back, helping others and
making a meaningful impact.
