What is the Special Needs Committee?

The Special Needs Committee is dedicated to supporting children with special needs by organizing educational programs for parents and staff, providing ability awareness workshops and simulations to help all children and adults understand and appreciate challenges faced by children with special needs and communicating local events on special needs topics.


Each unit president is asked to appoint a Special Needs committee representative from his/her school to help support the outreach efforts and attend monthly meetings led by the Council Special Needs Chair. For more information, please visit the San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs Special Needs Committee webpage:

Parent Resource Library

Over the years, the PTA Special Needs Committee has purchased a collection of books and DVDs, which we store at the library at Iron Horse Middle School.  These books and DVDs are part of the library's Parent Resources, and any parent, teacher or staff member in SRVUSD can check out these materials.  Please check out the Parent Resources section at IHMS.  You can access the list as follows:
