During the 1970’s, 80’s and into the 90’s, a group of parents and teachers fought for the rights of children like us. They joined people in wheelchairs, blind folks, and those with hearing loss to stand for civil rights of all people to a fair and appropriate education and access to work. They were pioneers in their day, standing for the premise that all children deserve a free and appropriate education.

The best way to pay tribute to the pioneers of our cause is to act on our rights by taking advantage of the accommodations and tools available to us.
