ABOUT TASK

TASK is a nonprofit organization that educates and empowers families of children with disabilities. We specialize in Special Education support and provide referrals to other agencies when needed. We do not attend IEPs on parents’ behalf, but provide information, training and resources so that parents learn how to help themselves. Our work supports a positive partnership between parents, teachers and schools to help kids access the accommodations and resources they need to thrive.

We are the nation’s second largest Parent Training and Information Center (PTI), a federally-funded, nationwide network of parent centers with similar missions. We support people with all disabilities from birth to age 26, including kids with mental illness, kids who are medically fragile, and those who have emotional challenges due to some kind of environmental trauma.

Our Family Support Specialists provide one-on-one consultations over the phone and at our facilities by appointment. They also present workshops and offer consultations in communities throughout Southern California where services are needed most. Our service area includes Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Riverside and Imperial. We are headquartered in Anaheim and have offices in South Gate, Alhambra, Riverside, Lake Elsinore, and San Diego.
