November is Military Family Month.

This week, we salute our military families and children. Military families with exceptional children have extra burdens to bear.

Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support.
- President Obama

When you give thanks this week, don’t forget our military families.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will find information and resources to help military families locate programs, services, and supports to meet their needs. Read OSEP Guidance to ensure military children receive required special education and related services.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
