SRP Training Series

MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  BECOME A SPAN RESOURCE PARENT!!      The SRP Program is comprised of trained volunteers, usually parents of children with special needs.  The volunteers, parents and/or professionals, are provided with extensive training and ongoing support.  They understand the dynamics of the systems that serve children with special needs in their community and have first hand knowledge and experience with local resources.

The 30-hour intensive training series is designed to train individuals to assist parents of children with special needs or at risk of inappropriate classification.  Resource Parents help families in understanding their rights and responsibilities under federal and state early intervention and special education laws.  The goal of this training is to recruit volunteers to provide families with technical assistance or to discuss any issues or concerns they may have about their child’s education and development.



The mission of the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN) is to empower and support families and inform and involve professionals and others interested in the healthy development and education of children and youth.

Our Vision:  All families in New Jersey will have the resources and support they need to ensure that their children become fully participating and contributing members of our communities and society.
