Parents are our greatest resource and we harness their power through a structured volunteer leadership committee. Members of PAC provide Special Needs Network, other nonprofits, and policymakers with advice and counsel on issues related to children, teens, and adults with a range of special needs. Parent leaders attend meetings, conferences, and activities that assist them in becoming active supporters of their children’s growth and development. Parents have an opportunity to participate in a range of civic engagement and community events which expand their own education and awareness of today’s opportunities and challenges of raising a child with special needs. Through PAC, parents also learn how they, themselves, can become recognized disability rights advocates.
