SPEAKS 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. FAPE allows all Special Education students (ages 0-26 in MI) to fulfill their education goals and be successful in
doing so in the community. It is our goal to advocate for special needs children through teaching the educational rights and laws. SPEAKS Education provides trainings and
information and referrals to students,
parents, educators and community agencies. SPEAKS Education wishes to build
a positive, working atmosphere and
relationship for the best interest of the
student. SPEAKS 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.
