PEAK Parent Center serves as Colorado’s federally-designated Parent Training and Information Center! Helping families get information so they can make informed decisions regarding their children is PEAK’s primary focus. PEAK supports thousands of Colorado families each year through its projects and services. Discovering that a child has a disability often feels overwhelming and isolating for parents. PEAK empowers families, educating them about specific disabilities, available resources, laws that protect their children's rights, and tools they need to become lifelong advocates for their children and themselves.
Parent and Youth Support Services
PEAK Parent Center was founded by parents of children with disabilities. Supporting families so their children have great lives is at the foundation of all that we do. Many of PEAK’s services focus on supporting parents and youth including:
Parent Advising in both English and Spanish: Connections to trained parent advisors who provide individualized information, support, and referrals to families by phone, email, and in-person. Information is available on a variety of topics including the special education process and parent rights, access to inclusive schools and communities, positive behavior supports, transition to adulthood, and much more!
Youth Advising in English and Spanish: Connections to transition specialists who provide individualized information, support, and referrals to self-advocates, youth, and parents by phone, email, and in-person.
Connections to evidence-based resources that support the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in all walks of life.
Webinars & Community Workshops: Free community workshops in locations across Colorado, plus online webinars on key topics for families, youth, and educators.
