"Innovation in Special Education"


Welcome to the CAPSEF Website!

The Connecticut Association of Private Special Education Facilities is a voluntary association of private schools which provides quality, cost effective, special education and related services to the special needs of children and adolescents (birth to 21 years) of Connecticut.

CAPSEF is really about our member schools.  Please check out our Member Directory to find a wealth of services for students across our state and contact numbers for getting all of your questions answered.   Our schools work collaboratively to brainstorm new and innovative ways to serve our students to maximize their success.

Our professional development conference held every March, has become a favorite of many educators and those interested in how to best educate students with special needs.  Our Membership Forums are designed to keep our members up to date on various issues, challenges and successes in our very special schools serving a very special population.   

CAPSEF schools work with families, public schools, state agencies, other caretakers and providers to implement model programs, that enhances each student's ability to succeed while enabling caregivers to help children in need.

The Association provides its members with a voice to represent interests to the State Department of Education, Bureau of Special EducationConnCASE and other provider, legislative, and advocacy groups.
