The SRP Program is an intensive training program designed to educate volunteers to assist parents of children with disabilities and special health needs in understanding their rights and responsibilities under federal and state laws. Participants will learn strategies on how to obtain appropriate educational programs and related services for children and youth. Attendees, both parents and professionals, are provided with extensive training and ongoing support to help them understand the dynamics of the systems that serve children with special needs. Individuals who complete the entire training series will receive a compilation of useful local, state and national resources and will be prepared to provide support to families around issues or concerns they may have about their child’s education and development.
