The Pyramid Parent Training Program is the community parent resource center established in 1991 by parents of children with disabilities. The program, funded through IDEA as a CPRC, is designed to support, assist, and provide expertise to parents in traditionally underserved areas of greater New Orleans. These underserved communities are those that have become isolated due to racial and/or cultural discrimination, language barriers, geographic locations (both rural and urban) and socio-economic factors. The program provides information and training on special education and disability legislation through workshops, newsletters, referrals, and one-to-one assistance.
