Formed last year, SPEAK -- Special Needs Parents, Educators And Kids -- holds recreational, arts, educational and social events for children with special needs and their families in and around Voorhees, N.J. "We have something in common as family members and caretakers, that we want to give them the opportunities to improve their lives and their children's lives as they're on their journey to be caretakers of these very special children," the group's president said of SPEAK's goals.
