Parent/Guardian Support Group
In collaboration with Eagle Mount and Montana State University's Human Development Clinic, we offer a monthly support group for parents and guardians of children with special needs. We start each group with an educational presentation/discussion on a variety of topics which is followed by informal networking over dinner. Graduate counseling interns are on site to provide any additional personalized support when needed. Childcare is offered for a limited number of children on a first come first serve basis by RSVP. The group, dinner and childcare are provided free of charge.
Special Needs Expo
Each April we offer a day long educational conference in collaboration with the Bozeman School District. The Expo includes break out sessions on a variety of special needs topics, a keynote event, and a large resource fair. Continuing education units are available for Montana educators who attend this event. Due to generous community support, we are able to provide a free breakfast and lunch and free childcare. This is a great way to get lots of information in one day and should not be missed!
SEPTA is also involved in a variety of other programs throughout the year including legislative candidate forums on disability, organizing trips to advocate for legislation that benefits people with special needs, a special needs Easter egg hunt, trips to the Museum of the Rockies and a monthly activity group for children with special needs age 6 – 12 called Bozeman Area Our Kids.
