WSPEI will offer Parents in Partnership training to parents of children with disabilities in various regions of the state. The participants will attend four or five weekend sessions and learn about working with statewide systems and other educational issues. Through this training, parents have an opportunity to develop a support group and make a commitment to action in their own communities. There is no cost to attend, and a stipend is available to offset some childcare costs.
WSPEI also offers 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. There is no cost to attend.
