Educational Advocacy

Training Center

The Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center builds positive futures for Virginia's children by working collaboratively with families, schools and communities in order to improve opportunities for excellence in education and success in school and community life. Our special focus is children with disabilities. We do this by providing:
  • Services and support for families and professionals;
  • Easy-to-understand, research-based information and training; and
  • Opportunities for strategic partnerships and advocacy for systemic improvement.


PEATC Philosophy

The Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center believes that children reach their full potential when families and professionals enjoy an equal, respectful partnership. PEATC believes that:
  • Families are children's first and best teachers;
  • Information and training enrich and empower families and professionals to build strong partnerships.
  • All children deserve the opportunity to live, learn and participate fully in their communities;
  • Children with disabilities can achieve independence and make valuable contributions to society.
