There are 13 Special Education Parent Centers across New York State. These centers provide parents of children with information regarding the special education process (referrals, individual evaluations, individualized program development, and transition planning) and resources to promote their meaningful involvement in their child’s education programs. The local/regional centers offer a wide variety of trainings, and most will provide presentations and trainings tailored to meet your needs at your parent group or community organization.  Below are links to the 13 local Parent Education Centers and area served. All provide expert individualized information and referral services and can assist you with locating and accessing local direct service programs.  See the NYS Department of Education Special Education Website for more resources and information.
