Michigan Alliance for Families provides information, support, and education for families who have children (birth through 26 years of age) who receive (or may be eligible to receive) special education services. This website can help you with finding information on special education issues as well as disability specific information.
Our goal is to increase the involvement of families in their children’s education. To do this, we offer learning opportunities across the state, leadership mentoring, and support.
In some regions, parents will connect directly to a local mentor to address the families’ needs. In areas not covered by a parent mentor, families have the support of our information and referral offices. All Michigan families are able to access 1:1 support, electronic and printed resource information, and referrals to local community resources.

Michigan Alliance for Families is a Michigan Department of Education Mandated Activities Project. Michigan Alliance for Families is our state’s federally funded Parent Training and Information Center.
