Mother meets with Parent Center staff. Families with a child who has a disability have special concerns and often need a great deal of information: information about the disability of their child, about early intervention (for babies and toddlers), school services (for school-aged children), therapy, local policies, transportation, and much more.

Fortunately, there’s help available, because 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.

For a quick read on what PTIs and CPRCs do, and how they can help parents and families of children with disabilities:
