Each state department of education provides resources intended for parent training and information. These organizations provide advocacy services and community resources and supports. The contact information for these centers are located in a document, Procedural Safeguards, given to parents/guardians annually, and when there is a critical change in services or placement.
Locate the parent training and information resource center in your state and review the site. Provide the link to your state’s parent information and training center and describe at least three different services this organization provides. Include discussion of how this tool can be used to support families and individuals with disabilities in your future special education settings. In replies to peers, discuss additional ways these resources could be utilized by teachers and families.my State is North Carolina
