In reading recent Journal-World stories about special education programs for Lawrence school children, the idea of creating a parent-advocacy group surfaced. Could you tell me about an existing group known as S.P.Un.K.?

Denise Snodgrass of Lawrence helped start S.P.Un.K., or Special Parents Unique Kids, two years ago as a support group for parents who have children with disabilities.

"It gives parents a chance to connect with other parents in the community who are living with the ramifications of having a child with special needs," she said. "We don't want to be in an adversarial role. We'd like to reach out to more parents."
