Welcome to the Virginia Family Special Education Connection

Welcome!

The goal of this website is to provide a one-stop-shop for parents, families and caregivers of children with special needs to:

  • Learn about and plan your child's educational program
  • Understand your legal rights and responsibilities
  • Access local resources including school system contacts and disability services in your community
  • Access an abundance of resources, including instructional strategies, assistive technology and behavioral supports to help your child succeed.

The Virginia Department of Education hopes that you find the information you need, whether you are new to special education or looking for the latest news, research, and resources.

Parents and families can make a difference in their child's education.
