PACER Center’s influence and its reputation for helping families of children with disabilities is known across the globe. As a result, international visitors are regularly welcomed at PACER Center. For example, members of Uganda’s Parliament and a delegation of medical and disability organization professionals from Uzbekistan (see photos) were summer visitors to PACER. In addition, government, business, disability, and education officials from nations such as India, Japan, the Netherlands, Guatemala, and the United Kingdom have recently toured PACER.

More than 400 parents and professionals from other countries receive the PACESETTER and other PACER materials.

“No matter where in the world they live, parents of children with disabilities and the professionals working to make a difference in their lives share a common bond. We applaud their commitment and are happy to exchange information that will help improve life for everyone,” said Paula F. Goldberg, PACER Center executive director.

Watch for an international Web site for families of children with disabilities being developed by PACER Center and to be launched soon.
