Millburn Special Education Committee (M-SPEC)

The Millburn Special Education Committee is a town-wide organization of parents whose children are classified by the district as having special educational needs and those concerned for our children who have learning, emotional and/or behavioral disabilities. Come see how this committee works and how you can get involved.    

M-SPEC meets once a month for parent meetings with the administration and once a month for parent support meetings.

The M-Spec Brochure is what M-Spec is about in a nutshell.

 We plan to have further dialog with the Special Services Department regarding some of the opportunities for change. 

M-SPEC Support Groups

Looks for new school- based support groups in the Fall!  We will also be adding support groups for parents of children with the same classification across all schools to discuss common challenges.

M-SPEC Speaker Series

Thursdays, March 24th, March 31st, and April 7th, 9:30-11:30 a.m. -- MSPEC Positive Parenting Workshops: Fostering Self-Esteem and Reducing Anxiety through Positive Parenting.

 Back by Popular Demand, for parents with children in nursery school and elementary school.  LIMITED SPACE OF 30. Please join us for a special educational workshop experience that can change the way you parent! Come one day--or come all three--but do not miss this incredible opportunity to work with local experienced psychologists Daniel H. Gallagher, Ph.D. and Neal Litinger, Ph.D. as they take you through a three day workshop on positive parenting techniques and strategies in the home.


Whether your child is 3 or in 5th grade, every parent can benefit from positive parenting.  Topics that will be covered include reduced stress/anxiety for kids and parents, pro-active discipline approaches, workable behavior plans, calmer bedtimes, and parental consistency. Participants will hear a model of “no-failure” paths to self-esteem and achievement while enhancing self-concept, self-esteem, and confidence.  The premise of these educational workshops is that these goals are achievable when parents understand the ways in which they can influence/teach these processes at home in a family setting.

$20/session, or $45 for all 3.
