SpEdConnecticut has been in existence for over 50 years and despite several name changes and office moves, our mission has remained constant – to increase awareness and understanding of children who learn differently and to secure appropriate educational services for this population in accordance with state and federal laws. SpEdConnecticut is a registered non-profit organization. We rely on trained volunteers to provide direct service to parents of children with a variety of special education needs primarily in Central Connecticut or within travelling distance of the capital. We maintain an office in Hartford to receive phone calls, provide initial information and support, conduct training, and maintain literature resources.
