Support the California Concerned Parents

 Join Today!

The California Concerned Parents is a group that serves to advance the status of children and parents with special needs.  Having a disability or having a family member with a disability creates challenges.  Resources, such as the schools, should be there to help parents, not create additional problems.  We believe that by helping children with disabilities receive an appropriate education, we improve education for all students.  We believe society will experience lower costs when all members of society receive an appropriate education.

To this end, we seek to have the California Department of Education enforce the federal laws that students with disabilities receive an appropriate education.  Schools should help students with disabilities and include them in all aspects of education.  An appropriate education should not be reserved solely for those students that are able to get a lawyer or who’s parents spend countless hours making up for failures in the school.

As an organization, we seek to include all parents and guardians caring who have or are caring for a student with special needs.  By working together, we can improve California!  Some of the school districts where members of the California Concerned Parents live include:
