Parent Information Center on Special Education

Serving New Hampshire families of children birth to age 26 and youth with all disabilities

About Us

Since 1975, the Parent Information Center on Special Education (PIC on Special Education) has been providing information, training and support to families who have a child with a disability so that they may participate effectively as team members in the Special Education process. PIC on Special Education collaborates with families, youth, schools, agencies and community members throughout the state. Our vision is that all children and youth with disabilities will have successful educational experiences that will prepare them to be actively involved in the community as adults.
