Our Mission:

To provide information for families and educators about the continuum of educational support available to students with disabilities, students who are gifted, and students with unmet needs. The center will offer support, workshops and other programming for families, educators, student support professionals, administrators, and advocates in the MetroWest area. The center also will engage in scholarly research, educator preparation, and professional development.

Our Sponsors:

The center is sponsored by the Education Department at Framingham State University.

Contact Us:

We are a "floating center" with events planned in various locations on campus, off campus, and online. Long-term goals include drop-in hours for families and a physical resource library. During the Spring 2020 semester, our part-time staff is working hard to implement our lecture/webinars, plan future events, establish partnerships, and respond to the overwhelming response from the community. Thank you for your patience as we work to respond to each inquiry.
