PWSA (USA) Crisis Counselor Evan Farrar,

PWSA (USA) Crisis Counselor Evan Farrar, recommends parents in the PWS community to explore Parent Centers in their area as a helpful resource for working with schools. Parent Centers, comprised of Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) and Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs), provide training and assistance to the families of the nation’s 7 million children with disabilities. These are funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
