The goal of the PEERS program is to provide education to parents and guardians about child-serving systems of care such as juvenile court, mental health, and education. Parent Advocates teach parents and guardians to:
- Prepare for meetings
- Ask meaningful questions
- Have a voice in the decision making regarding services for their child
Parents will learn the skills to advocate effectively for their children in a collaborative, constructive and non-adversarial way that will ensure appropriate interventions that meet the unique needs of their child.
Parent Advocates will assist parents in preparing for formal community meetings with social service providers or school personnel. Parent Advocates are available to attend IEP meetings, court hearings, multi-disciplinary team meetings, intake appointments, expulsion hearings, or other activities determined on a case by case basis.
PEERS services are offered free of charge to program participants. PEERS is offered in partnership with:
