OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH
PEATC has shared interactive and informative resources on their Family Engagement Facebook page.

DISABILITY HISTORY AND AWARENESS MONTH
Youth with disabilities initiated a campaign in 2009 to have the Virginia General Assembly pass a resolution designating October as Disability History and Awareness Month (DHAM). These same youth developed a vision statement for DHAM: Disability history, education and awareness will promote positive attitudes in schools creating a culture of mutual respect, understanding, and equal opportunities for all. Learn about the history of disability here

AUGMENTATIVE AND ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION (AAC) AWARENESS MONTH
As a reminder, the Parent Resource Center has a variety of resources compiled by APS staff and families on our Using AAC at Home website, including contact information to schedule a complimentary, 1:1 coaching session with our wonderful AAC Implementation Coaches, and connections to Arlington’s AAC Parents group.
