SEDRA: Special Education Disabilities Resources & Advocacy


Navigating the Special Education maze is hard, SEDRA makes it Easy!

Join me on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 at the Baltimore On  Purpose Women's Networking meeting.  I am one of this month's feature members. My presentation will touch on the shift in focus of SEDRA to increase awareness of resources and the special education process.  The venue is Mystical Voyage Cafe in White Marsh, MD.  The time is 5:30pm-9pm.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Are the cuts in DDA funding affecting you or someone you care about?  Let DDA know how funding cuts affect services and you.

We had a large turnout at the November 16, 2009 meeting in Baltimore City.  Over 100 people attended and CNN was there. Over 600 attended the Montgomery County meeting.  Come out and show your support.  If you didn't make it to a meeting, contact your representative in Annapolis.  Let them know how you feel!
