  • 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 PEN 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?
