A Message from the Director

  • Linda

    Welcome to the BCSS CAPE Resource Center. The Center serves the special needs community by providing access to information, resources, services, educational opportunities, and referrals. Learn about the many features, services and benefits that the Center brings to the special needs community.

    The workshops for parents/caregivers and professionals during the 2019-20 school year were very exciting and well attended.  We held more than 30 workshops for parents and 10 for professionals.  As we continue to plan for the upcoming school year, we held a Life Planning workshop on July 10th which was well attended for a summer evening. 

    As always, our Parent-to-Parent Exchange meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7pm.  These parent support meetings are geared to parents with youth 14 years and older, who have developmental and other disabilities. Doreen Moran leads the group and she wears the hat of both professional in the field and parent of two young adults with disabilities. Hope you can participate - drop in when you can.

    Please check back in late summer or early fall for our workshop flyers and to register – https://cape.bergen.org


    Wishing everyone an enjoyable summer of 2019!!

    You can register at https://cape.bergen.org for these and other FREE workshops throughout the year.
