IPUL - Education

How IPUL can help you with Education related questions

The majority of questions we tend to get at Idaho Parents Unlimited are around special education – help understanding IEP’s, navigating the difference between IEP’s and 504 Plans, accessing early intervention services, improving literacy, and securing Dispute Resolution Services.  IPUL’s Parent Education Coordinators are just that – Parents who have been through the same experiences you have, and who are here to assist you in navigating the systems that seem overwhelming at times.  We can help!

Idaho Parents Unlimited is the Parent Training and Information Center for the state of Idaho. 

What are Parent Training and Information Centers?

Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) are authorized in Part D of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and are funded by the U. S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. There is at least one PTI in each state. Because they are population based, Idaho has only one, and that is IPUL. Each PTI is mandated to assist parents to better understand the nature of their children’s disabilities and their educational and developmental needs;

  • communicate effectively with personnel responsible for providing special education, early intervention, and related services;
  • participate in decision-making processes and the development of individualized education programs (IEPs) under Part B and individualized family service plans under Part C;
  • obtain appropriate information about the range of options, programs, services, and resources available to assist children with disabilities and their families;
  • understand the provision of IDEA for the education of, and the provision of early intervention services to, children with disabilities; and
  • participate in school reform activities.
