Parent Adviser Services
We rely on trained volunteers to provide direct service to parents of children with a variety of special education needs in central Connecticut. A number of our volunteers come from the educational and legal fields and are able to bring their unique perspectives to each case.
Each volunteer is required to attend our twelve week training course on key aspects of the special education process. Our parent advisers are unique in that we focus on teaching the parents how to navigate the system in order to access an appropriate program for their children.
While our Parent Advisers come from different walks of life, what they all have in common is experience working or living with a child with a disability.
