The PAVE is a non-profit organization that was established in 1981 to provide information and support to families of children with disabilities and the professionals who work with them. PAVE believes that all parents can be their children's best advocates if they receive the necessary information to help them make informed decisions. Washington PAVE is dedicated to providing parents and professionals with such information concerning appropriate educational programs, rights and responsibilities, early intervention, inclusion and transition issues, parent to parent support, and military issues. The organization works to fulfill its mission and objectives by offering several regular support groups, workshops and symposia, effective parenting series, and community liaison training. In addition, Washington PAVE offers a variety of publications including materials concerning Individualized Education Programs (IEP), home record keeping, transition, and evaluation; a series of pamphlets with tips for parents whose children have particular disorders and/or disabilities; and a quarterly newsletter entitled the "PAVE Pipeline." The newsletter is dedicated to informing people whose lives are linked to children or adults with disabilities about available resources, strategies for educational planning, family support and activities, and inclusion and transition issues.
