The mission of Parents Reaching Out is to enhance positive outcomes for families and children in New Mexico through informed decision making, advocacy, education, and resources. Parents Reaching Out provides the networking opportunities for families to connect with and support each other.

Primary Programs:

As the New Mexico Parent Training and Information Center, we serve families of infants, children and youth with all types of disabilities as well as related professionals. We help families understand the special education system and the Individual Educational Program process so that they can make informed decisions and effectively advocate for their child.

Our Early Childhood program support the families of infants and toddlers who are at risk for or have developmental delays, disabilities or medical conditions. We help families navigate systems and connect with other parents. We promote the importance of advocacy, record keeping, family perspective and partnerships with those who provide services to our children.
