Parent Center Programs

INCLUDEnyc is the Special Education Parent Center for Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx, funded by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to promote positive futures for children with disabilities ages 3 to 21.

We are also part of the Parent Training and Information Center (PTIC) collaborative for all five boroughs, funded by the U.S. Department of Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to provide training and assistance to families with children from birth to 26.

Additionally, we are funded by USDOE to operate a Community Parent Resource Center (CPRC) in the South Bronx and northern Manhattan offering direct support and training to young adults, families, and organizations primarily to Spanish-speaking communities.

We are the lead PTIC partner — alongside Starbridge and the Parent Network of Western New York — for NYS Transition Partners, funded by the Rehabilitative Services Administration to provide young adults with disabilities and their families with postsecondary transition-related information and support.
