Useful Websites for Families

Happy New Year, Wonderful Families!

As you begin 2014, we thought you might enjoy checking out a couple of websites.

  • Building Confidence and Building a Better IEP, Matrix:  This wonderful e-learning course is available on the California Parent Training Information Center for the San Francisco area.  It is developed with all parents who have kiddos in special education so it keeps the information general.  Don't worry about it coming from another state - there's only one time they use a title that is Californian and the philosophy is spot on for Texas!  Quick literally means quick.  Grab a cup of hot cocoa (or tea) and be ready to spend less than 30 minutes participating in a fun and informative training.

  • Parent Coordination Network: A Resource for Parents of Children with Special Needs: this new website that was developed by the Parent Coordination Network, which is a leadership function of the Texas Education Agency.  The Parent Coordination Network is committed to ensuring that parents of students with disabilities receive accurate and timely information to assist them in making informed choices in their child’s education. as a leadership function of the Texas Education Agency.  Their website is packed with great information about family organizations, parent organizations, TEA resources, upcoming events, and social media.

I hope you enjoy your time on these great websites. Please share your experiences so we can all learn together.
