Family Network on Disabilities (FND) was founded in 1985 by a group of parents of children with disabilities who came together for mutual support and information-sharing. FND is a grassroots organization for persons with disabilities and their families that is family-centered and family-driven.
Family Network on Disabilities has been working in Florida for 30 years serving as a Parent Training Information Center. We are pleased to share with you information about what a PTI is and our services that we offer free of charge.
For 30 years, Family Network on Disabilities has been devoted to developing up-to-date training on a variety of topics concerning the disability community that will benefit parents, self-advocates, educators, and professionals and now we are proud to add our youth advocate workshop series into the mix.
Family Network on Disabilities provides comprehensive special needs trust services, including service as a trustee, co-trustee, or trust administrator. We handle all types of special needs trusts, including pooled trusts.
Family Network on Disabilities (FND) strives to have a fully interactive, accessible,
online platform with photos, video, pod-casting, live streaming, audio sound banks,
and a collection of pre-made social stories for families to use on the go.

As the mother of two children receiving special education services in the School District of Lee County, the Parent Education Network program has been very helpful to help me understand IDEA and my rights as a parent.
As a migrant parent, it’s extra challenging to understand the system, and to be sure I’m taking the right decisions for my children. Having someone who speaks my native language and is willing to provide resources and information in it, it’s a priceless support, which I would like other families to receive as well.
