Carpe Diem: Special Education

Navigating Special Education Laws: Policies and Advocates Promo

Airing on CARPE DIEM October 7-11, 2013

This episode of Carpe Diem focuses on special education advocacy and the importance of early intervention for children with autism. About 1 in 49 children are diagnosed with autism. New Jersey has been experiencing major budget cuts, especially in the area of special education, where school boards need the money because they already spend two times the amount for children with special needs.
Featured in this episode are Dr. Gerard Costa, Director of the Center for Autism & Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University and Heather Amoroso, a mother of a special education child.
This episode was produced by MSU Alum Heather Amoroso, hosted by MSU Alum Stephanie Petchers, and directed by TVDM Major Tonya Moken.
