Inclusive Education

We believe with or without disabilities, all students need and should be provided with the support to learn together effectively, using family, school and community.

Information and Referral

LaCAN further the Council’s mission by advocating for policies and systems that support inclusion everywhere people learn, work, live, and play. 

LA Council's Advocacy Network (LaCAN)

A system of resources has been developed to provide up-to-date, detailed information on disabilities, educational issues, and general topics of interest to families who have children with disabilities or special needs, adults with disabilities or special needs and professionals working in the disability field. 


Experienced parents are linked with new parents to provide emotional support and information about specific disabilities. Parent Liaisons provide information, referrals, education, training and one to one support to families enrolled in Children’s Special Health Services.


The transition staff work with families and professionals to help train, educate, and empower them to develop an Individualized Transition Plan that will help students reach their fullest potential.
