A free, in-person training for individuals interested in becoming an Educational Surrogate Parent for children with disabilities

Family Matters Parent Training and Information Center is hosting training for individuals interested in being an Educational Surrogate Parent on Oct. 16 beginning at 9 a.m.

Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child with a disability?

An Educational Surrogate Parent is an advocate in the special education process on the student’s behalf when a child with disabilities doesn’t have parent/guardian representation.

Family Matters is training volunteers in all counties of the state to act as Educational Surrogate Parent at Individualized Education Program (IEP)/special education meetings.
