Welcome to the Fairfax County Special Education PTA! We are thrilled to have you here. Our journey to this point began in 2016 when two parents of special needs students in Fairfax County, independent of each other, decided that there must be a way to unite the diverse and numerous communities of special education and special needs families within Fairfax County. Since then, we have been joined by a group of dedicated Fairfax County parents with children in special education who also had a desire to unite, educate and strengthen the network of resources, information, education, and social opportunities for our special needs community. Our official launch was on April 25, 2017, and we could not be more excited by the enthusiasm with which the community has greeted us.
