SPIN Facts




Print SPIN Fact Sheet

SPIN (Special Parent Involvement Network) is a statewide project of KY-SPIN, Inc.  SPIN-PTI (Parent Training & Information Project) is funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education.  SPIN provides training, information and support to people with disabilities, their parents and families, and information on all types of disabilities and topics for all age groups.

The mission of SPIN-PTI (Special Parent Involvement Network – Parent Training and Information) is to empower and support individuals with disabilities and their families to effectively advocate for and access needed information, resources and support networks in order to enhance the quality of their lives throughout Kentucky.

KY-SPIN, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting programs which will enable persons with disabilities and their families to enhance their quality of life.  KY-SPIN, Inc. has a Board of Directors comprised of individuals with disabilities, their parents/family members and professionals who provide guidance and assistance to the various programs.  We serve individuals with disabilities, their parents/family members and professionals with all types of disabilities and all age groups.

Through a “Families Training Families” model, consultants conduct community workshops on the issues of laws, rights, listening and communication skills, to promote better understanding of disability issues.

SPIN provides families with the knowledge, skills, information and support they need to obtain improved services for their children.  Informed Family-Professional education leads to improved Family-Professional partnerships.

Workshops for parents and professionals are on-going throughout the 11 SPIN regions in Kentucky.  There is no fee for SPIN services. Resource materials and referral services are also available. Through our 800 number we assist families through one on one consultation stepping through the process of accessing services for their child.
