Any parent who has a child with special needs attending a mainstream primary or special school, where the parent association is a member of NPC.

Why should I be involved?

As the parent of a child with Special Needs, you are in the best position to judge how well the education system meets the needs of your child. By becoming a member of this group you will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the education system, which will benefit not only your child but all children with Special Needs. The best advocate that your child has is you.  If not you, then who? 

How do I become a member of the Group?

When your parent association becomes a member of NPC there is a form that must be filled out, there is a section on this form for a Parent of a child with special educational needs, this should be filled out with your details.
