Welcome to G.A.P.S. - Group for Advocacy and Parent Support!

G.A.P.S. is a Support Group for Parents and Guardians of individuals with special needs, offering advocacy skills training, networking, information, support and resources.

The goal of G.A.P.S. is to "fill in the gaps" parents encounter in their understanding of the special education system, transition and post High School supports and services. We will assist parents in developing successful advocacy skills, encourage them to become engaged in their child's education, and understand their options entering adulthood.


G.A.P.S. will be temporarily suspending monthly parent meetings, beginning in December, for the Winter months.
Look for new meetings in Spring, 2013!

Is G.A.P.S. Off-line?

G.A.P.S is located in North Central PA and is intended to be a local support group, sponsored by Parent to Parent of PA

Counties served include:
Potter, Tioga, Bradford, Clinton, Lycoming, Sullivan, Centre, Union, Montour, Columbia, Snyder and Northumberland.

Who Can Join G.A.P.S.?

Any parent or guardian of an individual with special needs [who has utilized the Special Education System] who is looking for support, information, resources and is interested in learning advocacy skills.

Please do not bring children to our meetings. It's hard for parents to openly share about difficult issues that involve children when they are present.
