Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) are funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. Our mission is to provide parents of children with disabilities training and information to ensure children are prepared to lead productive independent lives. The staff have experience as parents of children with disabilities and have access to a wide range of information. They are available to answer requests for information or to help parents find the answers to more complex problems. Staff also collaborate with parent organizations, state agencies and other organizations in Maine to expand opportunities available to families. Basic services include one-on-one information to parents and professionals concerning needed services, educational rights, and specific disabilities through a toll free statewide telephone number, 1-800-870-7746. We also maintains a TDD, a telecommunication device for individuals with hearing impairments. Other services include educational workshops on a wide variety of topics specific to parent needs as well as core trainings on special education law.
MPF’s central office offers a lending library where families can borrow library books and videos on topics related to education and disabilities as well as signup for the quarterly newsletter, Parent Connection. This website hosts workshops, informational packets, upcoming events and much more.
