The Education Law Center also provides a very helpful guide for parents of disabilities who do not require an IEP, but still need a 504 Plan to provide accommodations, modifications or services at school to permit them to access their education.
ABOARD’s Autism Connections of PA provides education, advocacy and training for parents of children with autism navigating the special education system.
The Pittsburgh Chapter of the International Dyslexia Association helps provide education and advocacy for parents of children with reading disabilities.
In addition, the Dylexia Center of Pittsburgh can provide free Orton Gillingham tutoring for children.
