Parent Center

Welcome to the Metropolitan Parent Center
The Metropolitan Parent Center (MPC) is one of only four Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIC) in all of New York State, providing information, training, and one-to-one support to families of children ages 0-26 with the full range of disabilities, and to the professionals who work with them. The MPC helps parents gain the skills and knowledge to help their children develop academic and functional skills that lead to independent productive adult lives.
 
Funded through the U.S. Department of Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Metropolitan Parent Center is part of a nationwide network of Parent Training and Information Centers in the United States, as well as a member of the NYS Parent Center Network. READ MORE >>
