What does Montana Empowerment Center, Inc do?
Montana Empowerment Center, Inc. is Montana’s Parent Training Information Center (PTI).
Montana Empowerment Center, Inc is excited to announce that they have received the grant for the Parent Training Information Center grant for Montana. MEC was founded in 2018 by families of children with disabilities and has been staffed, managed, and governed by parents and individuals with disabilities. Many of the staff have very personal ties to this work as they have experienced firsthand the difficulty of accessing information, making connections, and forming relationships to best advocate for themselves, their child, and their families. The mission of MEC is to empower, encourage, and educate all Montana families of children and young adults (birth to 26 years of age) with disabilities. We at MEC are very optimistic and look forward to hearing from you our Montana families.
PTIs are federally funded programs through the United States Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) authorized in Part D of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). PTIs serve families of children with disabilities who are ages birth through 26. We serve families of children with the full range of disabilities.
