Keystone AEA Parent & Educator Connection
Since 1984, Keystone AEA's Parent & Educator Connection (PEC) has worked to develop and sustain effective partnerships between families, educators, and community providers to promote success for all children and youth with disabilities. The PEC has provided a unique opportunity for parents and educators to build partnerships to improve educational programs for children and young adults with special needs. Every AEA has a PEC program. Each program has an Educator Coordinator and a Parent Coordinator. PEC Coordinators work with parents and schools, they are also parents of children or young adults with special needs. Click here for more parent resources on transition planning.
