Welcome to Reading SEPAC

Welcome to the Reading Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). We are a group of parents who foster a community in Reading for children with an array of special needs and their caregivers, and who help advise the Reading Massachusetts School district on children with disabilities.

Here you will find many resources to help you as a parent or caregiver of a child with special needs, along with details on upcoming social gatherings, informational meetings and more. 

Please contact us at SEPACReading@gmail.com if you are interested in joining Reading SEPAC's e-mail list, would like to learn more, or have a question or concern.  You can also follow us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SEPAC.Reading/ and instagram at  https://www.instagram.com/ReadingSEPAC
