Adapting to Change – Letter from our Executive Director

The theme of this newsletter is Adapting to Change, and you can read about all the ways the Federation has adapted to our current world while remaining true to the vision of our founders. While our mission remains as important as ever, we constantly are looking for new ways to ensure that all children have the opportunities to reach their potential. Some of the new offerings you will see from the Federation include Mindful Mondays for educators to take a moment of self-care; monthly Family Connections in English and Spanish for parents and caregivers to have time to talk with each other. MassPac Monday, Wellness Wednesday and Focus Fridays – our twice weekly Facebook Live events to offer timely information, advice and regional meetings and educational forums to support families of children with special health needs.
