Web Resource of the Week--Exceptional Children's Assistance Center

Our web resource this week is one of our favorite parent resources ever--the Exceptional Children's Assistance Center (ECAC), which is based in North Carolina.   ECAC provides information, education, outreach, and support to improve the lives and education of all children through a special emphasis on children with disabilities.  

Why is it a favorite?  They are advocates for parents and families who combine helpful web resources, a parent hotline (in English and Spanish), and some really great workshops and learning opportunities that are meant to help parents get the knowledge they need to support their child's learning and success.
