Send Us Your Stories!
Hopefully you've enjoyed hearing from the RRC each month, and now we'd like to hear from you! We are hoping to launch a new feature in which we highlight successes, achievements and good news from and about students with disabilities and the teachers and specialists who support them with such expertise, care and devotion. Similar the way our monthly "Service Spotlight" (below) promotes the great work of Rhode Island organizations in the field, we aim to roll out a new regular feature to shine a light on human interest stories. We know that you are doing amazing things out there -- we want to hear about it and spread the word!

To submit your story for inclusion in next month's newsletter, please email info@regionalresourcecenter.org. Ideally, submissions should be 200 - 500 words. We look forward to hearing from you!
