Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Outcome (CANDO) Program Advocacy Resources

Advocacy Resources

Every state has at least one Parent Training and Information (PTI) Center to assist you with working with the school system and many states also have a Community Parent Resource Center (CPRC), which offers the same type of support to parents of children with disabilities. Below are advocacy organizations in our area. Please contact the center in your state if you have questions or need help meeting your child’s learning needs. If your state is not listed, you may find your PTI here.
