History and Mission of the Parent Information Center
Established three decades ago, with the belief that all children can succeed with the right support, the NH Coalition for Citizens with Disabilities dba the Parent Information Center (PIC) provides a wealth of services designed to help parents understand their child’s special needs and the laws that govern the special education process.
In 1995, PIC expanded its focus to serve all parents, not just parents of children with disabilities. PIC assists families and schools to increase parental involvement in children’s education with the goal of increasing student academic achievement.
PIC is a pioneer in creating family/school/community partnerships that help parents of all students get involved in their child’s education. PIC also offers additional parenting support through workshops and resource and referral. From its inception to the present, the Parent Information Center has demonstrated an ability to identify and respond to the changing needs of children and families in N.H.
Presently, PIC reaches more than 10,000 families and educators in NH with direct services
PIC maintains websites receiving more than 500,000 hits per year.
PIC presents more than 290 training workshops to over 8,000 families and professionals throughout the State each year.
