This training is limited to 2014- 2022 PACL graduates.

This 3-day training was developed as a follow up for PACL graduates and allows them to report on how they have been able to use our PACL training to effect change. By attending Advanced PACL participants will continue to improve their leadership skills and prepare to serve as mentors for parents who are new to special education. Parents will then have the opportunity to explore ways to continue the development of their leadership initiatives and teach others how to build collaborative relationships with the professionals who work with children with disabilities.

This is a free 3-day IN PERSON event. Accepted participants are provided a complimentary hotel room and meals.
