As a juvenile probation officer, the trainings offered through our local PEAL representative was extremely helpful. The juvenile probation officers in my department and I feel better prepared to handle the educational aspects in our clients' lives.

As a Speech and Language Specialist with the Pittsburgh Public Schools, I've found the services of the Peal Center to be extremely valuable. I've attended a number of their conferences as well as workshops provided by them. I've received excellent referrals for my students and their parents and have referred a number of friends, whose children have special needs, to the Peal Center. I look forward to continuing my relationship with them.

Referrals for my students as well as the knowledge I've gained when I've attended their conferences and workshops.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

As a parent-to-parent supporter, especially in the area of special education, I frequently refer families to PEAL because I know PEAL gives top-notch information and guidance. I also encourage parents to attend the annual PEAL Conference on inclusion. It is THE place in Western PA for parents to learn how to obtain the best possible education for children with disabilities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not be able to think of any.

As a parent I have worked with the people who started PEAL and know they have a lot of knowledge and expertise. I have attended their conferences and have come away with new information and also with the feeling of being revived.
As a professional advocate I have presented at one PEAL conference and I refer parents to PEAL for resources and they refer to me for advocacy services in my area.
I have also found them to be a great resource in areas that do not have professional advocates and they have provided the much needed support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

with referrals they make to me and being able to hook up families who need help

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

That they would be able to expand their staff to help more people
