Region D Parent Technical Assistance Center Project

The purpose of the Region D Parent Technical Assistance Project (Region D PTAC) is to provide technical assistance to Parent Centers, comprised of Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) and Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs), in a 10 state region (Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming). The Region D PTAC believes that Parent Centers help foster independence in families so they are empowered to participate and advocate for their children throughout their lives.

Parent Training and Information Center Project

The purpose of the Parent Training and Information (PTI) project is to provide Colorado parents, self-advocates, and family members with high quality information and training so that they can become lifelong advocates for their children and themselves. The PTI assists families and self-advocates to create change so that schools and communities are more responsive to the needs of all students.
