Working Together: Building Improved Communication Web Site

“Working Together” is a collection of CADRE resources designed to support collaboration between parents, schools, and early childhood programs. This online site includes short videos, a study guide, and related resources on listening skills, understanding positions and interests, and a module, “The Tale of Two Conversations,” which was developed in collaboration with the Office for Dispute Resolution in Pennsylvania.

Collaborating with Families, Online Interactive Module from IRIS Center

The IRIS Center, in collaboration with PACER Center, has created an interactive, online module to support educators in diversifying and improving family participation, especially families of students with disabilities. The IRIS Center provides resources about students with disabilities to college and university faculty and professional development providers, translating research about education into practice. Module participants join Claire Morgan (principal of M. T. Watkins Middle School) and her staff as they work through learning about the families of their students to develop ideas to engage all families and increase parental/familial involvement.

Parent Technical Assistance Center Network

The Parent Technical Assistance Center Network consists of the National Parent Technical Assistance Center, which provides Parent Centers with innovative technical assistance, up-to-date information, and high quality resources and materials; the six Regional Parent Technical Assistance Centers (RPTACs), which provide direct technical assistance to Parent Centers to increase their capacity to more effectively serve and support families; and the Parent Centers, which provide training and assistance to the families of the nation’s 7 million children with disabilities. Every state has at least one PTI, and those with larger populations may have more.
