Need assistance?
Connect with an advocate!

Are you a Minnesota parent seeking support for your child with a disability? PACER has parent advocates available to help with questions including topics such as navigating the special education process, transition beyond high school, special health care needs, and more.

We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls. To help us respond as quickly as possible, please email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Age and disability of child
  • 2-3 sentences summarizing a major question or concern
  • Any upcoming deadlines (e.g., IEP meeting, paperwork that needs to be signed, etc.)

We will respond to your message as soon as we can. Thank you for contacting PACER!
