A network of people who understand and have a passion for helping children…

I am a Volunteer Advocate with The Parent Information Center.  My son entered the 1st grade in our town and about 4 months into school there began to be problems.  I knew nothing about educational disabilities or IEP‘s. It wasn’t long until someone said to me, here is a business card of an Educational Advocate, they are volunteers trained to help guide you or help you with understanding the school. So in the fall of 1999 I took the training (VA) and attended workshops and began to build a network of people who understood and had the same passion for helping children.  I have used my training to assist my two children and many children and families over the past 7+ years. My Children are now 16 & 10 and both have enjoyed the successes of school because I knew how to help them. Both my boys have friends and are doing very well and it is because I was taught to know better!  Thank you Parent Information...
