The Mathews County Parent Resource Center is dedicated to providing the community at large with resources to increase awareness and knowledge of individuals with specal needs. It is a safe place where individuals with disabilities, families, educators and support caregivers can make connections, find answers to their questions, and gain understanding that improves the quality of their lives.
The Mathews County Parent Resource Center provides information and resources that further its mission to parents of children with special needs, educators, service providers and the community at large. We are here to answer questions, provide consultation and support, help people navigate Virginia's Special Education (SPED) service system, educate parents and teachers about special education services and supports, and to share resources, news and updated information on a wide range of special education topics.
We welcome you to visit the various pages on our website and hope the information is helpful and informative. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need further information on a SPED issue or topic. We are here to assist you.
Note: The world of spcial education is full of acronyms! We have a dedicated tab on our website (see "Acronyms" tab) that explains many of the abbreviaions used in special education. The most common ones we use througout this site are: "PRC" for Parent Resource Center and "SPED" for special education.
NOTE: In addition to our website, you can visit the PRC desk located in the Youth Wing at Mathews Memorial Library. The PRC has a place in the library for in-person meetings as well as numerous resources on diverse SPED topics, child development, disabilities, etc. Click on the "Contact Us" tab above for detailed information about the ways you can connect with your PRC!
