SpEAK Volunteer Program

Special education decisions for children in foster care are typically made by a parent/guardian, kinship caregiver, foster parent, or close family member. Some children, however, do not have anyone in their lives able to make special education decisions. In those situations, the judge in the child’s case will appoint a Special Education Advocacy for Kids (SpEAK) volunteer to act as the Special Education Decision Maker. SpEAK Volunteers work with the child and their team to make sure the child is receiving needed educational services.
