What is SEPTA?
The Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) provides parents and teachers of special education students with the ability to obtain information, discuss issues, and improve academic and social experiences of our special education students. Membership is open to all parents, teachers and administrators. We gladly welcome and appreciate all of your support.
Roslyn SEPTA has meetings concerning many issues that our children face. It is a forum where we can join as a community and be a unified voice for our children and their needs.
The success of SEPTA depends on your participation and support. Together we can make a difference for all of our children. Our SEPTA board happens to be parents who have children with special needs, so we clearly understand what it is to have a child with special needs. We are very excited to have some wonderful speakers and presentations this year.
All of our meetings will be held at
Thursday, September 30
Wednesday, December 7
Thursday, January 27
Thursday, March 24
Wednesday, May 11
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or need advice!

Eustacia Cutler Speaks at Invitation of Roslyn SEPTA
Eustacia Cutler, author of A Thorn In My Pocket: Temple Grandin's Mother Tells The Family Story, spoke to a large audience of parents and faculty members at Roslyn High School on December 7, 2010. Her presentation was entitled, "Yes Your Child Is Autistic, But Who Is Your Child And Who Are You? Coming To Terms With Autism". Ms. Cutler gave a moving account of the enormous challenges she faced when raising an autistic child decades ago, when there was very little understanding of the nature of autism, let alone how to meet the needs of children on the spectrum.
