If your child has a disability, you are his or her most important advocate. You may need information about your child’s disability, early intervention (for a baby or toddler), school services (for a school-aged child), therapy, transportation, and much more.
Help is available. Every state has at least one parent training and information center (PTI) to offer families just this kind of information. Many states also have a community parent resource center (CPRC), which offers the same type of support and training to parents of children with disabilities.
The Center for Parent Information and Resources has information about these centers. Click on your state in the map on this page to see contact information for PTIs and CPRCs in your state.
To learn more about what PTIs and CPRCs do and how they can help parents and families of children with disabilities, check out PTIs and CPRCs: Resources for Parents. Additional resources for parents are available at http://www.parentcenterhub.org/.
