On May 16, 2016, a group of dedicated parents of children with special needs met on the Skyline Elementary playground and made it a goal to form a Special Needs PTA in Tacoma. These parents realized that the 4,000+ students with special needs in Tacoma had no unified voice. Seven months later, on December 15, 2016, our goal became a reality. We are now an established PTA with a diverse membership that includes parents, teachers, and community members. Please join us in our efforts to advocate for our childrens' academic and social needs, find ways to best support them and their teachers, and learn from each other!
