About Parent Centers

What are Parent Centers?

Parent Centers are an invaluable resource for families of children with disabilities. Parent Centers are comprised of Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) and Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs). Every state has at least one PTI and though each one has its own unique name, each is commonly known as a PTI (e.g. the PTI in Arizona is Raising Special Kids and the PTI in Colorado is PEAK Parent Center).

Some states also have Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs). CPRCs do the same kind of work as PTIs, but they focus on reaching traditionally underserved families who have children with disabilities, such as those living in a specific area in the state, those with low income, or those with limited English proficiency. PTIs and CPRCs are funded through our nation’s special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and are designated by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.
