The Center for Parent Information and Resources – a resource library for families of children with disabilities

1524942_10152155313989587_1330526752_nThis month’s free CPIR newsletter ‘Buzz from the Hub’ included a Spotlight on Early Learning Resources, which prompted me to draw your attention to what’s available at CPIR.

CPIR is funded by the US Government, and provides two key library services – a comprehensive collection of resources of their own, plus well-selected links to external resources. CPIR’s own collection includes many of the resources developed by NICHCY, the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities, who’s funding ended in October 2013. These resources include documents, guides, web pages, presentations, videos and audio, webinars, online modules and online tools. The links to external resources are well-arranged and the site search works well, but beware – you could end up browsing for hours!

Key Topics within the CPIR library include:
* Behavior
* Disability
* Family supports
* Mental Health
* Parental Rights
* Early learning

The CPIR website and many resources are offered in Spanish alongside English, and is provided under a Public Domain licence, so there is no restriction on how you use it.public_domain_logo-69px

If you want to keep up-to-date with new resources added to CPIR, subscribe to their free newsletter ‘Buzz from the Hub’ mentioned above, or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
