Parent Training and Information Projects

The Partners Resource Network (PRN) is the nonprofit agency awarded three parent training and information (PTI) projects which now cover the entire state of Texas. These projects operate independently but do share some central administrative functions. All of the projects share the common purpose of empowering parents of children and youth with disabilities in their roles as parents, decision makers, and advocates for their children. In addition, the PRN publishes the Parent Advocate Quarterly Newsletter.
