What we're about
This group aims to connect and empower moms (and dads, and caregivers!) of Twice-Exceptional, Asperger's, and GT/LD kids. Many of our kids are falling through the cracks of the local public school systems (FCPS, Arlington County, DCPS, and PGCPS). Some of our kids are not being properly identified because of flawed standards, and many identified kids are unfairly forced to choose between accommodations and enrichment. The process of fighting for our kids individually is emotionally draining, time-consuming, expensive, and disorienting, leaving parents to consider Homeschooling or expensive private schools even when this is a burden for the family. Together we can get our VOICES heard, advocate for better programs, and share information and resources to fight the invisible but very real institutional barriers to getting our kids access to the proper services.
