Special Education Resources for Parents

 

The Right to Education Consent Agreement of 1972 provided for the establishment of a Local Task Force (LTF) in each of the 29 Intermediate Units to ensure that the intent and spirit of the agreement is carried out throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

 

Although the initial intent of the LTF was to represent the needs and interests of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, today's LTF has expanded its efforts to include all students with disabilities.

 

Any parent, local school district representative or community agency provider serving individuals with disabilities is welcomed and encouraged to become a member of the LTF.
