Exceptional Children, Extraordinary Potential
Montana Parent Training & Information Center (PTI)
Montana Parent Training & Information Center is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Working with families of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities, birth to 26
Helping parents participate effectively in their children's education and development
Partnering with professionals and policy makers to improve outcomes for all children with disabilities
Montana PTI is part of the national technical assistance Center for Parent Information and Resources ( CPIR ) and Region C Parent Technical Assistance Center ( PTAC ) which promote the partnership of families, professionals and advocates for the involvement of families as valued decision makers in meeting the unique needs of their child/youth.
