ECAC is a private non-profit parent organization committed to improving the lives and education of ALL children through a special emphasis on children with disabilities. ECAC affirms the right of all individuals, from all backgrounds and cultures, with or without disabilities, to an appropriate education and other needed services. We seek to make that right a reality by providing information, education, outreach, and support to and for families with children across the state of North Carolina.

Our Parent Educators and PTI staff are here to help you navigate the special education maze and provide you with the information and tools you need to be a informed and active participant in your child’s education!
Parent Information and Resource Center (NC PIRC) – is all about parental involvement and is a multi-level training and information program designed with parents, parent groups, schools and community participants in mind.

North Carolina Family Voices- is part of national grassroots network of families and friends. We advocate for health care services that are family-centered; community-based; comprehensive; coordinated; and culturally competent for children and youth with special health care needs. We promote the inclusion of families as decision makers at all levels of health care and we support the essential partnerships between families and professionals (Contact thru HIC)
Our mission is to help families establish good relationships with caregivers in their homes. Often families feel unsure or nervous about having someone in the home to provide care or other services to children with disabilities, chronic illnesses, or other special needs. Our goal is to help families create open, honest, and respectful communication with caregivers, all of which ultimately helps the child receiving the care.
