District 57 parents have created an on-line support network, P.E.P.S. Dist57, to support families with children who have special needs. Taken from their website:
"At our monthly meetings, we come together to talk about our children’s needs and our concerns for their well-being. We gather information from other parents and/or professionals.
Our goal is to support parents and teachers of children not meeting typical classroom expectations through monthly networking meetings.
