Advocating for positive changes in special education

We work for positive changes in special education services within the Prince George’s County public school system. Join with us to develop partnerships that facilitate discussion between parents & families, educators, community leaders, and administrators with the goal of enhancing services for students with disabilities.

General membership meetings are open to all. They are held the fourth Tuesday of every month*, except July, August, and December, at 6:30 pm at The Arc of Prince George’s County, 1401 McCormick Drive, Largo, MD (Google Map).

For more information, call (301) 431-5675 (The Family Support Center).

* When PGCPS after school activities close due to inclement weather our meetings will be rescheduled.
