S.P.E.A.K.S. Education will provide a united union where students, parents, and educators along with community/professional and consumers will support and provide Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to children.

S.P.E.A.K.S. also provides parent mentors that are trained to work one on one with the families so they can be educated to advocate for their own child.
