    2018 Annual Ombudsman Report submitted by Paul S. Aronsohn:

    The Arc is working with The Council on Quality and Leadership to do housing research about how people with disabilities decide on where they will live in the future. Help us with this research by completing this online survey . The survey takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete, and you will get a $15 gift card for your participation!



A Message from the Director

  • Linda

    Welcome to the BCSS CAPE Resource Center. The Center serves the special needs community by providing access to information, resources, services, educational opportunities, and referrals. Learn about the many features, services and benefits that the Center brings to the special needs community.

    The workshops for parents/caregivers and professionals during the 2018-19 school year were very exciting and well attended.  We held 36 workshops with over a thousand registrants and are beginning to plan for the upcoming school year. Our next workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 12th, from 7:00 to 8:30pm and will discuss Housing Options for People with Developmental Disabilities.  While you may be confused by the process, Courtney Davey, Housing Subsidy Unit Director with DDD and Errol Seltzer, President of Infinity Tomorrow will help you understand it better.  Hope to see you on June 12th.

    As always, our Parent-to-Parent Exchange meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at 7pm. The next meeting is June 11th followed by July 9th. These monthly parent support meetings are geared to parents with youth 14 years and older, who have developmental and other disabilities. Doreen Moran leads the group and she wears the hat of both professional in the field and parent of two young adults with disabilities. Hope you can participate - drop in when you can.

    As part of our ongoing efforts to provide Professional Development for Educators, we are proud to once again offer the 15th Annual ABA Summer Institute Workshop Series which will be held July 8, 9, 10 and 11, 2019 from 9:00am to 3:00pm. 

    Please check back in a few weeks for any additional workshops being offered in July. 


    Wishing everyone an enjoyable summer!!
