"Breaking Down Barriers"


The Education for Parent of Indian Children with Special Needs' Native American Conference on Special Education has reached parents from across Indian Country and Canada for almost 2 decades. The conference is designed to provide resources to families of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities, developmental delays, and special healthcare needs. Parents are taught skills and provided with information that will aid them in advocating on their child’s behalf, thus creating opportunities that will positively impact systems, policy, and delivery of services that promote equity and quality service. Tribal leaders and special education professionals will learn from their peers, constituents, students, parents, and other advocates in promoting equal education opportunities for students with special needs.
