About RRECPTA Family Support & Resources

Do you suspect that your child has a disability? Was your child born with special needs? Is your child on an IEP? Join the Family Resources and Support Committee!

We meet for dinner once a month and share resources, support and laughs. We also have a monthly play date for the kiddos, designed around their unique needs.

If you need play dates, field trips modified, or just parent to parent support, this is the group for you!

Questions? Please feel free to contact: rrecptafamilyresources@gmail.com.

Understood.org: The 13 Conditions Covered under IDEA
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires schools to provide special education and related services to eligible students. But not every child with learning or attention issues qualifies. To be covered, a child’s school performance must be “adversely affected” by one of the 13 conditions.

Connecting for Kids is a nonprofit with a mission to provide education and support to families with concerns about their child. We serve families in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties with children younger than 13 years of age.
