Parents and Families

The VDOE TTAC at GMU recognizes that families play a vital role in the academic progress and success of students with disabilities. The TTAC supports them through information dissemination and links to other resources and organizations that work with families. In addition, the TTAC partners with family organizations to help them meet the needs of families and students.

  • TTAC Monthly News Brief: Ready, Set, Go, provides information and resources via email focusing on educational issues related to students with disabilities.
  • TTAC Online, is a web-based community linking people and resources to help children and youth with disabilities. TTAC Online is available to teachers, parents and professionals.
  • Lending resources of the Kellar Library, where TTAC houses books, videos, and other materials specifically related to students and individuals with disabilities.
