About NAPSEC

 

The National Association of Private Special Education Centers (NAPSEC) was established in 1971 as a nonprofit association with the vision of supporting access to appropriate special education programs as vital components of the continuum. NAPSEC currently represents over 200 programs nationally and over 400 at the state level through the Council of Affiliated State Associations (CASA). NAPSEC members include private early intervention providers, schools, residential therapeutic centers, and adult living programs across the United States.  Although NAPSEC programs are diverse in the services they provide, all strive to guarantee that each individual’s unique needs are met on an individualized basis in order to achieve his or her maximum potential. NAPSEC is the only national association that exclusively represents private special education programs.
