Since 1975, the Parent Information Center on Special Education (PIC on Special Education) has been providing information, training and support to families who have a child with a disability so that they may participate effectively as team members in the Special Education process. PIC on Special Education collaborates with families, youth, schools, agencies and community members throughout the state. Our vision is that all children and youth with disabilities will have successful educational experiences that will prepare them to be actively involved in the community as adults.
PIC on Special Education staff provides information and support to parents and others so that they may participate effectively as team members in the Special Education process. While the staff are not attorneys and do not give legal advice, we do offer information on educational laws, regulations and best practices. This support is designed to assist parents in making informed decisions for their children.
