Beachwood City Schools

Neurodiversity, Disability, and Adaptive Education Family Network

Mission Statement

To connect, support, and work towards full inclusion of families with students who are neurodiverse, disabled, and/or require adaptive education in Beachwood City School District through social events, community building, awareness campaigns, and educational programming.


This network is open to ALL Beachwood Schools families. We welcome participation from any members of our community who wish to be educated on and contribute to matters concerning neurodiversity, disability, and adaptive education in our district. The participation and cooperation of families of students who are neurotypical, non-disabled, and do not require adaptive education is necessary and essential in order to achieve full inclusion.
