Special Education PTO (SEPTO)


Support, Education & Friendship...One Family at a Time

What is West Hartford SEPTO?

West Hartford SEPTO is a town-wide special education PTO.  We are a non-profit organization, founded in June 2002 to provide support, education and friendship to parents navigating their way through the school system with a child receiving special education services.

Pizza Night at Harry's BC

Book Club & Discussion
Tuesday, March 19

West Hartford SEPTO hosts a discussion of Alan Kadzin’s book “The Everyday Parenting Toolkit” with host Matthew Carbone, West Hartford School’s district-wide BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) at the Noah Webster Library Meeting Room at 7pm.

Kazdin, renowned Yale University psychology professor , child psychiatrist and Director of the Yale Parenting Center, offers practical strategies to help parents manage everyday behavioral problems, from toilet training to teaching a child to accept “no” without a tantrum all the way up to struggles over cellphones and curfew.

The book is free with this year’s $15 membership to SEPTO. To get your book contact us at info@whsepto.org. Copies are also available at the Noah Webster Library and Bishops Corner branch.
