Parent Centers – Parent Training and Information Centers and Community Parent Resource Centers – provide training and assistance to the families of the nation’s seven million children with disabilities. They are funded through the U.S. Department of Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Every state has at least one Parent Center, and those with large populations may have more.

Parent Centers serve families of all ages (birth to 26) and all disabilities (physical, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional). Parent Centers provide a variety of services including one-on-one support and assistance, workshops, publications, and Web sites. The majority of Parent Center staff and boards are parents of children with disabilities, so they are able to bring personal experience and empathy when working with families.
