Family Partnership Programs

Parents in Partnership (PiP)

PIP is a statewide program in which a group of parents and other caregivers meet together five times during the year to: share their family stories, challenges, joys and triumphs of raising their children. At PIP participants will learn about community and statewide resources for children with disabilities; explore issues around health, education, policy making, legislation, inclusion, self-determination, family well-being, and IDEA Special Education Law.

Youth in Partnership with Parents for Empowerment (YiPPE)

YiPPE is a group of youth and their parents who meet together five times during the year. They will hear from speakers and take part in hands-on activities in parallel programs centered around transition. While some topics may overlap, parents will be able to enjoy their own sessions while their youth are learning similar information in a youth-friendly format.​
