RtI Modeule

Schools are committed to helping all children succeed. One of the ways schools help children who are struggling to learn and need additional support to be successful is using Response to Instruction (RtI).

Parents and caregivers working together with the school, with your child's educators is important. Being proactive, being involved with your child's education is important to prevent issues from arising. Please take this 25 minute module to learn more about RtI and what to do if you have questions.


Welcome to the Parent Information Center of NH

The Mission of the Parent Information Center is to guide and encourage families in supporting the unique learning potential of their children, including children with disabilities. The Parent Information Center is committed to the belief that:

  • PIC LogoParents make the difference
  • All children can succeed given the right support
  • Every child is worth our investment
  • Children do best when schools and families work together in partnership
  • As children grow they can take increasing ownership of their education and future

The Parent Information Center (PIC) and its various grant programs address a variety of key issues in order to help parents support their children’s success in school and in life. These issues are described in the panels below, which include links to the various programs, and to their services and resources.


 


Thank you to all of the participants, sponsors, and presenters who helped make the Parent Information Center and NH Family Voices Partnering for Strength Conference a success. Over 140 attendees (and over 20 youth) were present and participated in a number of workshops focused on collaborating with families, schools, communities and youth to support children with disabilities and special healthcare needs.

A special thank you to our gold level sponsors
