Disability Services in Compton, CA
Staff of Advocates for Special Kids (TASK) is a nonprofit charitable organization whose goal is to enable individuals with disabilities to gain their maximum potential by delivering them, their families and the specialists who serve them with training, support, information, resources and referrals, and by delivering community awareness programs. Initially, the primary focus was on kids three to 21 years of age, but services evolved to include all ages, especially in the TASK Technology Center.

Visit our calendar to see upcoming online workshops, or contact your local TASK office for help with special education, IEPs or answers to your questions about assistive technology and augmentative and alternative communication.
