I am glad that I was given thisassignment, because I now know more about certainspecial needs and organizations that are available forsupport. I am eager to share the information with mygroup and can’t wait to hear what organizations theyfound and the services that they provide. I hope tocollect the information and keep it in a book that I canuse for references in my future career as an ECE.
