The Special Education PTA (SEPTA) of Old Bridge is a non-profit organization with three board members who do not collect a salary or receive benefits. The Special Education PTA is committed to bringing parents and guardians current and vital information on issues that face children with special needs and their families.
There are over 1,000 children in Old Bridge who are classified with a wide variety of disabilities. Our students and their families are trying to address the impact of various disabilities such as Autism, ADHD, various learning disabilities, hearing impairment, visual impairment, health needs, and even children with behavioral and social disabilities. With so many children being diagnosed with Autism, we want to make sure parents are aware of the options available to them that will help ensure their children get the education they deserve and know about local activities that may be of benefit and enjoyment for the children.
SEPTA does this by utilizing speakers, providing workshops (for parents) and providing pertinent information to parents and guardians. We buy books for the library on different topics in the realm of Special Education. We purchase things for the classrooms from preschool through high school that the teachers would not be able to obtain without our assistance. There is so much information and so many things going on in the State of New Jersey having to do with Special Education that it is imperative that parents know what is going on. It is our mission to ensure that they do.
SEPTA does fundraising every year to raise money for scholarships for our graduating seniors as well as for many other programs for our students. Every cent we raise is used for the children; we have no administrative costs, salaries to pay, or anything of that nature on our books.
