We've designed a Special Education and Distance Learning toolkitto help guide you through what special education and Distance Learning might look like for your child. It includes a one-page handout on Distance Learning, insights on (and the importance of) keeping a Distance Learning log or journal, and a how-to for creating a parent input statement during this time. We hope you'll find this toolkit helpful as we continue to navigate this new landscape.
Please also remember that our Family Support Specialists are available to answer questions, share information and resources, and to listen and brainstorm with you.Call (503) 786-6082 or email email@example.com.
Hang in there!

UPDATES to the ODDS Expanded Family Support Program
This is a follow up to information we shared about temporary policy changes the Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS) has made to support children receiving DD services. These changes aim to assist families in accessing resources, services and supports during this time of uncertainty, recognizing the stress of having children out of school and having to stay home. Lilia Teninty, Director of ODDS shared, “every family is different-we encourage families to reach out to their child’s Services Coordinator to explore together flexible and responsive ways to meet the child’s unique support needs during this crisis.”
