According to the Education Act , Section 185: "Every school board shall establish an advisory committee on services for handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities".
The committee is composed of:
* Parents of students concerned
* Representative of teachers
* Representative of non-teaching professional staff
* Representative of support staff
* Representatives of community organizations who provide services to these students
* A school principal
* The Director General or his/her representative
The role of this committee is to:

While SNAC does not deal with individual issues, parents of children with special needs are welcome to attend the monthly meetings.
