The Special Parent Advocacy Group was founded in 2011.
Special Parent Advocacy Group is a 501c3 organization founded by a mother who experienced struggles as she attempted to navigate the treacherous waters of Special Education issues within the Trenton Public School System. As she sought after services for her Autistic son, she began to notice a pattern of families in challenging situations similar to the one she was facing. They were not receiving the services which they were entitled and/or services were not provided in a timely manner as prescribed in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) if they were prescribed at all.
Finding services for families of children with special needs; holding the school districts accountable; and ensuring the rights of parents of children with Special Needs became the immediate mission of the Special Parent Advocacy Group.
SPAG is committed to providing families with resources and advocacy representation since its start in 2011. Special Parent Advocacy Group (SPAG) has evolved into a holistic program providing many services to include Summer Camps, After school services, and weekend events for families and their children who make up the special needs community throughout Mercer County. SPAG provides many services while raising awareness to families regarding their rights as protected under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). The Special Parent Advocacy Group is growing with expediency, and in so doing, it is creating a more unified, holistic and goal oriented program for all those in need of their assistance.
