Terri is a parent of 2 children with disabilities who decided to become further involved with the community after advocating for her own children to share my knowledge and experiences with other families experiencing confusion with the special education process. She currently volunteers as a Parent Advocate working directly with families of special education students as well as facilitating a local Facebook support group (The East Haddam Special Needs Parent Group). The group provides advice, training, networking opportunities, and special events for local families.
Terri holds a Bachelor of Science degree In Communications and a 40-hour ABA training certificate. She hopes to continue and expand my work in the area of neurodevelopmental disabilities and educational advocacy within the community. She is currently seeking a seat on the local Board of Education and hope to bring the skills and best practices obtained with CT LEND back to her district to enhance policies and programs.
