Service Description

The Special Education Action Committee, Incorporated (SEAC) was founded in 1983 as a nonprofit coalition of parents of children with disabilities, concerned citizens and organizations of parents and professionals serving Alabama's children with disabilities.

SEAC operates a parent training and information center (PTI) that is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services (OSERS). SEAC is committed to the task of helping parents children with disabilities to become full participants in their child's individualized education program(IEP).

SEAC trains parents to train other parents so that all children with disabilities will receive the rights and benefits guaranteed under Public Law 105-17, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Now SEAC also operates a Parent Information Resource Center (PIRC). The PIRC program is designed to help parents of children in regular and special programs to better understand their educational needs. Parents learn how to work with educators to plan successful learning programs for their children and how to follow up to see that the plan is working. PIRC seeks to identify and train parents of children at risk educationally.

SEAC Services Include:
Basic Workshops-Special Education Laws; Evaluation(s);
IEP Development; Parent/ Professional Communication;
Problem Solving Strategies.

Individual Assistance/Training-One-to-one assistance for individual parents and professionals in developing the child's Individualized Education Program (IEP).
