Hartford – State Senator Henri Martin (R-31) today addressed special education teachers, administrators, students, and supporters at the State Capitol.

“I am happy to say that society has recognized the value of education for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We now know that the right education can help these students live productive, fulfilling lives. We recognize the tremendously positive impact that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have on society and in our own lives,” Sen. Martin said.

“Every person in this room has value,” he continued. “Intellectually and developmentally disabled children, like all children, have a right to an education that will help them live as productive and independent a life as possible.”
