Support & Training

West Virginia Parent Training and Information offers a variety of workshops and training for parents, caregivers, and professionals. Most training is completed virtually and lasts approximately 1.5 – 2.0 hours, which allows for questions and follow-up that parents may be experiencing. Key stakeholders and organizations often invite us to present and do in-person training. The great thing about joining a support group like Parent Strong is that it allows parents to connect with other families experiencing many of the same issues. We hope you will consider signing up for one of our training sessions or a Parent Strong support meeting.

How Do The Meetings Help?

A support group is created to provide support, and taking time out of the day to take care of yourself and relate to other parents is okay. We hope you will consider joining a support group. All services from WV Parent Training and Information are at no cost to families. If you would like information about joining our WV PTI’s Parent Strong support group, please contact us at 304-472-5697 or email
