The Virginia Family's Guide to Special Education.
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has updated The Virginia Family's Guide to Special Education. This publication is a revision of the former A Parent’s Guide to Special Education which was initially published in 2010. This new state guide was developed by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to help those involved in special education, whether as families, teachers, school administrators, advocates, or students.

We offer free webinars, confidential consultations, a lending library, and resources to help adults support the success of all students, including those with learning challenges, special needs, and disabilities.
