About Us » Advocacy


We take a leadership role on issues that affect the lives of our children and staff!
We do this by advocating for increased funding at the state and federal level, promoting a greater understanding of the curriculum needs of our students, and communicating with state and national leaders to help them understand the needs of our special students.
As part of a larger community of children with disabilities, we are proud to share that our Executive Director Dr. Bernadette M. Kappen is the current President of the 4201 Schools Association.
Dr. Kappen's 4201 archived testimony to the Fiscal Committees of the New York State Legislature can be found below.
