Parent Leadership Training is a program designed specifically for parents of children with disabilities. It is based on research and a movement toward facilitated Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) meetings. What is the Role of a Parent Leader? Parent Leaders are trained by PRN to attend ARD Meetings with other parents. Their role is to help the parent prepare for the meeting, plan an agenda, identify the issues and support the collaborative process of the meeting. This also means assisting the parent and school with reaching a consensus where possible. Parent Leaders are not advocates, but rather Partners in the ARD process. Parent Leaders are parents who have gone through a one day intensive Parent Leadership Training Program and are volunteers for Partners Resource Network (PRN).
