The Utah Parent Center (UPC) is Utah’s Parent Training and Information Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs.
The Parent Training and Information (PTI) project is the “heart” of the Utah Parent Center and has been continuously funded since 1983. This project is funded by grant #H328M150034 from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004). Project activities are designed to respond to the training and information needs of the parents of Utah’s identified 65,000 children and young adults with disabilities.
The UPC’s model is based on several effective strategies to deliver information and training and to develop skills.
