Welcome to Needham SEPAC

We are parents of special education students who have joined together to provide information and support to each other. 

We meet regularly with school administrators to give our input on the policies and programs that affect our children.


"Ask the Experts: IEP Meeting Do's and Don'ts"

Join us as we visit both sides of the table at an IEP meeting. Advocate and former administrator Tina Roy Lynde and attorney Eileen Hagerty will share strategies and insights from their many years working with families of special education students to help you communicate more effectively and productively with your child’s team.

Eileen Hagerty is an attorney at Kotin, Crabtree & Strong who specializes in special education law, and has been representing students and their parents for nearly 20 years.

Tina Roy Lynde has been a special education advocate for the past 13 years. Previously, she worked for the Brookline Public Schools for 24 years as a special education teacher and Out of District Administrator.

All parents are encouraged to attend our monthly business meetings. During the first hour we meet with administrators to discuss topics of common interest. For the last half hour, parents remain for a guided conversation on the "topic of the month," which will help us determine agenda items for future meetings.
