The Southeast Regional Resource Center (SERRC) is one of six Regional Resource Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs. The RRCs assist states in carrying out activities that support programs for special education and related services for infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities and their families.

Statement of Purpose The Southeast Regional Resource Center provides technical assistance as well as serves as a link between State Education Agencies (SEAs) and Lead Agencies ( LAs) and appropriate technical assistance providers at National, State and Local levels to assist SEAs and LAs in achieving systemic change and improving results for children with disabilities and their families.

This program provides technical assistance and information that (1) supports State and Local entities in building capacity to improve early intervention, educational, and transitional services and results for children with disabilities and their families; and (2) addresses goals and priorities for changing State systems that provide early intervention, educational, and transitional services for children with disabilities and their families.

Scope of Activities SERRC assumes a proactive role in service delivery to support unified education programs for students with disabilities and their families by incorporating results from needs assessments, state profiles, and information requests for technical assistance from collaborative networks, including parent organizations.

SERRC is designed to assist SEAs in the following areas: alternate assessment, development of a comprehensive communication system, training special education personnel in curriculum framework and how to link Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) to the general education curriculum, efficient delivery of special education services in inclusive classrooms, provide training for mediators in dispute resolutions, training of paraprofessionals, parent training, analysis of other effective systems for meeting the needs of children with disabilities, comparative system changes with State Improvement Grants (SIGs), transition, and conduct regional meetings for problem and information sharing.

In the School of Education, SERRC is located on the campus of Auburn University Montgomery (AUM). AUM is an accredited university by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is centrally located in Montgomery, Alabama. AUM serves students from Montgomery and the surrounding area of south central Alabama. The total number of students enrolled is approximately 5000, the majority of whom are nontraditional students. In addition to the students enrolled in credit courses, over 15,000 persons are enrolled in Continuing Education activities. As a standard practice, AUM provides flexible course scheduling, by providing classes during day and evening hours and on the weekend. Courses are also offered through distance learning via the Internet.
