Welcome to the CAPSEF Website!
As last year, this year is going to be just as exciting. We have changed a few things around in response to the needs of our members. We hope to be able to meet members and perspective members at our Membership Forums and Annual Professional Development Conference. Check our Calendar of Upcoming Events for details.
Our annual conference to be held March 11, has become a favorite of many educators and those interested in how to best educate students with special needs. This year we are going back to the CT Convention Center and are busy making it better than ever. Our Membership Forums are designed to keep our members up to date on various issues, challenges and successes in our very special schools serving a very special population. We will also continue our tradition of celebrating the special contribution of an individual who the organization recognizes as someone who has made a special contribution to special education, particularly to the education of the students most difficult to educate, in our state.
The Connecticut Association of Private Special Education Facilities is a voluntary association of private schools which provides quality, cost effective, special education and related services to the special needs of children and adolescents (birth to 21 years) of Connecticut.
CAPSEF is really about our member schools. Please check out our Member Directory to find a wealth of services for students across our state and contact numbers for getting all of your questions answered. Our schools work collaboratively to brainstorm new and innovative ways to serve our students to maximize their success.
CAPSEF schools work with families, public schools, state agencies, other caretakers and providers to implement model programs, that enhances each student's ability to succeed while enabling caregivers to help children in need.
The Association provides its members with a voice to represent interests to the State Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education, ConnCASE and other provider, legislative, and advocacy groups.
On behalf of our Executive Board and membership, I would like to welcome and encourage you to allow us to be a powerful resource to better educate our students.
