Family Involvement

NTACT defines parent(s) or family involvement as parent(s)/families/guardian are active and knowledgeable participants in all aspects of transition planning (e.g., decision-making, providing support, attending meetings, and advocating for their child).

NTACT disseminates resources to guide practices that are developed from the best available evidence of effectiveness. Throughout our website resources developed directly from the research are indicated as Evidence-Based, Research-Based, or Promising.
