Family Support and Resource Center

Please Join us for our Quarterly Special Education Citizen’s Advisory Committee (SECAC) Meeting

Where: Talbot County Education Center (Conference Room 2)

12 Magnolia Street, Easton

Guest Speaker: Kelly Nelson will be sharing information about Maryland Able

Maryland ABLE is a way to help people with disabilities and their families save for everyday needs, save and invest in a tax-free account, and prepare for the future without losing state or local benefits such as SSI and Medicaid Waiver services.  Kelly will share information about the eligibility criteria, enrollment, account management, tax benefits and how to use an ABLE account to pay for qualified disability expenses that support your child’s health, independence and quality of life.

When: Tuesday, September 24th from 5-7pm

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Stacey Behrens at  sbehrens(at)talbotschools.org or 410-822-0330, ext. 179.

Offering Support

"Support" can be defined many different ways. One definition that we hope best describes what we offer at the Family Support & Resource Center is "...to provide active help and/or encouragement, to provide assistance or comfort to someone..."

There are many different ways to offer support:

  1. a one on one meeting to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your child's Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  2. attending an IEP meeting with you at your child's school
  3. a referral to a person, resource or agency that turns out to be the next best step for a particular situation
  4. borrowing a book or DVD that speaks directly to a specific disability or issue

There are many books and DVDs that may be checked out. Come to the center or contact Stacy Behrens if there is a book and/or DVD you would like to check out. There is no time limit on how long you may borrow the materials, but please return them when you are done so that others may take advantage of the information.

Materials may be returned directly to the center or to any school office. Please indicate that it should be returned to Stacy Behrens, Parent Coordinator in the interschool mail.
