Parents Reaching Out
The mission of Parents Reaching Out is to enhance positive outcomes for families and children in New Mexico through informed decision making, advocacy, education, and resources. Parents Reaching Out provides the networking opportunities for families to connect with and support each other.
As the New Mexico Parent Training and Information Center, we serve families of infants, children and youth with all types of disabilities as well as related professionals. We help families understand the special education system and the Individual Educational Program process so that they can make informed decisions and effectively advocate for their child.
Our Early Childhood program support the families of infants and toddlers who are at risk for or have developmental delays, disabilities or medical conditions. We help families navigate systems and connect with other parents. We promote the importance of advocacy, record keeping, family perspective and partnerships with those who provide services to our children.
As the New Mexico Family to Family Health Information Center we serves communities by helping build family capacity to understand the health care system and make informed choices to access quality health care services that best meet their needs.
