Parent Centers & the White House

Very seldom are Parent Centers mentioned in a White House press briefing, but please see the the current Fact Sheet as the "Administration Announces New Actions to Address the Needs of People with Disabilities and Older Adults in Response to and Recovery from COVID-⁠19."
Kindly note, the US Department of Education "will also provide resources for parents who would like additional support in understanding how to navigate their child’s in-person learning experience through local regional parent training and information centers [aka, parent centers]. Parents may find their local center here and reach out for direct assistance and referrals to other organizations, as well as to gain skills to effectively participate in the education and development of their children."
Parent Centers are here to help and be a huge resource for you!
We are always diligently vetting news and information to support and empower parents to participate more effectively in their children’s education and development as we partner with professionals and policy makers to improve outcomes for *all* children with disabilities.
