Supporting the Parent Centers Who Serve Families of Children with Disabilities




Featured Resource

Developmental Disabilities | Discapacidades del Desarrollo

When a baby or preschooler lags far behind, doesn't reach key developmental milestones, or loses a previously acquired skill, it's reasonable to suspect a mental or physical problem serious enough to be considered a developmental disability. These pages in English and Spanish appearing on the website provide authoritative guidance on developmental disabilities, developmental milestones at various ages, and what parents and professionals need to know or do. Each page is actually a suite of articles in both languages about specific disabilities that are considered as developmental disabilities. Perfect for sharing with the English and Spanish-speaking families and communities you serve!

See the full list of articles and find links to both the English and Spanish suites.

Forming a Mutually Respectful University-Community Partnership through a ‘Family as Faculty’ Project


Parent Centers' work isn't always confined to the walls of their offices or websites—they publish too! Indiana PTI IN*SOURCE's Executive Director, Joel Boehner, recently co-authored the peer-reviewed publication on IHE partnership: "Forming a Mutually Respectful University-Community Partnership through a 'Family as Faculty' Project." This article addresses how the PTI works collaboratively with higher ed professionals to locate and establish families as co-educators in an undergraduate special education course on families for pre-service special education teachers.
