“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

― Brené Brown

Updated and Newly Added CPIR Resources

Webinar | Act Early Ambassadors 2021
Just posted is this pre-recorded webinar featuring how Parent Centers can partner with CDC’s Act Early Ambassadors in 2021.

CPIR Info Suites and Resource Collections
Here’s a handy cheat sheet to speed you to the many suites and collections that CPIR has on key Parent Center and family-related topics such as behavior, early intervention, IEPs, transition planning, and much more!

Education/Training Connections
This resource is designed to help a transitioning student and members of his or her IEP team to consider the possibility of more education or training after high school—perhaps postsecondary education at a college, university, or community college; vocational education to learn a trade or specific job skill; or continuing and adult education.

Assistive Technology Act
Want to learn more about the ATA and the many ways the law and its program promote awareness of and access to assistive technologies for individuals with disabilities? Want to connect with your state-level AT project?

Considering Assistive Technology for Students with Disabilities
This page was first produced as part of the Building the Legacy training curriculum on IDEA 2004. It’s a tool for IEP teams to use when they are considering whether a student with disabilities could benefit from assistive technology. In addition to updating the tool, we’ve added PDF and Word versions for easy printing and sharing.
