Empowerment Through Education

The mission of Partners Resource Network is to empower youth with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities in their roles as decision-makers and advocates.

We help parents and youth self-advocates to:

  • Understand the disability
  • Find program and service options,
  • Participate as team members with professionals during IEP preparation
  • Understand state and federal laws
  • Communicate more effectively with professionals
  • Gain needed advocacy skills
  • Build a support network

All of our services are free to parents and youth self-advocates.
