Student, Family, and Community Partnerships
Nonprofit and community organizations across Maryland who provide training, resources and other services for children and youth with disabilities and their families are an important part of the Statewide system of supports. The Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services partners with many such organizations from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore and everywhere in between to improve outcomes.
The leaders, staff, and participants of these organizations share their insights and experiences about the needs of children and families across the State. Through grant funding, the Division supports innovative programs that provide professional learning to teachers and other service providers, support and information to families, and other resources.
