Parents Reaching Out serves families of infants, children and youth with all types of disabilities as well as related professionals as New Mexico’s Parent Training and Information Center (PTI) funded by the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). Our first responsibility is to inform and educate parents about special education law and the rights and responsibilities they and their child have under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Our goal is to provide tools to families to help them make informed decisions as equal partners in their child’s Individual Education Program (IEP). Our Family Liaisons use telephone assistance, workshops and publications to provide ‘family friendly’ training to parents, educators and service providers throughout New Mexico.
