PIC on Special Education – Services for Schools
The staff of the Parent Information Center on Special Education project believes that when all IEP Team members have information about their roles, rights and responsibilities, they are able to work more effectively together. PIC on Special Education provides telephone assistance to school personnel and other professionals regarding the special education process and can also provide strategies and print materials to professionals to help them support parent participation in the special education process. PIC on Special Education can also partner with schools to provide parent trainings on the special education process or professional development trainings (for a small fee). Please see PIC on Special Education’s workshop brochure and the www.nhspecialed.org website for more information.
