The PATH Project is one of three federally funded Parent Training and Information Centers (PTI) serving Texas parents of children and youth with disabilities ages 0-26. We serve families living in ESC regions 5-13.

PATH Regional Coordinators are here for you! We can help you:
  • Understand your child’s disability;
  • Understand your rights and responsibilities under IDEA;
  • Obtain and evaluate resources and services for your child;
  • Fully participate as a team member with professionals in planning services for your child.

What kind of assistance does PATH offer?

– Individual assistance over the phone and in-person,
– Workshops and webinars on a variety of special education topics, and
– Access to resources such as printed publications and online courses.

How do I get started?

Contact us at 1.800.866.4726 or and we will put you in touch with the PATH Regional Coordinator helping parents and families in your area.

Is there a cost?

No. All of our services are provided at no cost to parents of infants, toddlers, children and youth with all types of disabilities.

What if I'm not sure PATH can help me?

Call us anyway! PATH offers many services and can provide contacts for other national, state and community resources, so chances are, there is something to fit your needs.
