The Parent & Educator Connection has a new name but is still focused on the same mission. The Iowa Family & Educator Partnership (FEP) helps build positive partnerships between parents and educators so children with special needs are successful. FEP coordinators are parents of children or young adults with special needs, so they share a unique perspective with the families they serve. They provide support and information to families individually and through parent workshops and support groups and facilitate linkages between families, schools and community agencies. Contact the FEP coordinator assigned to your school district if you need assistance or information.
