NCDG For Parents

Parents have a vital role to play in their children's career development. Parents can help their children do well in school, help them discover their talents, make sure they get the education and skills to develop those talents, and send them off well-prepared for a good career.

The NTSC and ACRN have developed brochures for parents who want to help their children with career development.   The brochures are in English and Spanish, and are grouped under five topic areas:

Starting Young

School Success

Career Exploration

Beyond High School

Children with Special Needs

You can make sure your children with special needs get the quality education to which they are entitled by law.

  • Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and Academic Success
    Federal law guarantees your special needs child an Individual Education Plan to help him or her achieve in school.

  • Communicating with Your Child's School and IEP Team
    Communication is key to ensuring that your child gets the most from his or her IEP.

  • Transition Services: Moving from High School to Further Education and Work
    You and your child can plan for the transition to adult life with the help of your child's IEP team.

  • Financial Aid for Post High School Options
    Financial aid and other services are available to help your special needs child attend college and do well once there.
