military familyMilitary families who have children with special needs face unique problems. These children transfer schools often and sometimes attend school overseas.

Although military children may not be educated in the U.S., they are still entitled to a Free, Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, we salute military families and children. You'll find information and resources to help military families locate programs, services, and supports when advocating for exceptional family members.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.
