Each year American Public Radio's program, " Speaking of Faith" broadcasts a story about L'Arch a community for people with mental and developmental disabilities founded by philosopher Jean Vanier . The first episode " L'Arche A Community of Brokenness and Beauty" allows people to tell how living beside people with disabilities has changed their lives.

The latest episode, "The Wisdom of Tenderness" , is a very inspiring interview with Jean Vanier.

This new IEP app helps parents of students with special needs become better-informed advocates by making IEP information easier to access.

The IEP app is offered free of charge. A special IEP app launch reception is being held on Thursday, January 28, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
