Celebrating our 16th year!

Parents United is a coalition of 25 school districts in collaboration with educators, community resources and related service providers focused on empowering parents of children with disabilities to become effective advocates and informed decision-makers.

What attendees are saying . . .

I LOVE the topics and the speakers seem to be the best in the business. As my son grows I REALLY appreciate finding out what to watch for in the future and try be pro-active in helping him through school life. I take as many of these “classes” to be the best parent I could possibly be. It really takes a village to raise a child and we as parents NEED to be involved.

When our daughter with special needs graduated from high school, her special needs and her need to grow with education did not. Parents United continues to help our daughter by providing us continuing parental education.

Graduate students taking the Concordia University course through the partnership with Parents United have created research projects ranging from single-student behavior improvement plans to redesigned district websites. Many have expressed how grateful they are to be involved in credit attainment that is truly of use to them. The Concordia-Parents United partnership has benefitted so many professionals, children and families in its first 5 years.
