Online Community Forum

A strong community means staying in touch - the easy way! DSE hosts a large online community where people can ask questions, offer help, discuss specific issues, and much more. We offers a few levels of participation:

Parents Only

A private space where parents can ask questions and discuss issues in a more confidential setting, such as specialist recommendations, advocacy, IEPs and more.

Open Connections

A more open venue where service providers and educators - in addiiton to parents - can chime in on issues that can benefit our entire community.

18 and Up - NEW

Issues for families of older kids are different, and we realize there is a need out there for a forum where those issues can be addressed, including

Applying for SSI benefits?
After school - day programs?
Conservatorship, yay or nay?
