Pathfinder Projects

Parent Training and Information Center (PTI)

Parent Training and Information Center (PTI)

Pathfinder Services of ND is the Parent Training and Information Center (PTI) for the state of North Dakota.


Experienced Parent Program

Experienced Parent Program

The Experienced Parent Program provides emotional support and information to families of children birth to 3 years of age with developmental disabilities, delays, and ongoing health care needs.


Parents Matter

Parents Matter

Parents, family members and guardians are a child’s first teachers. They instill the foundational values, habits and attitudes their children need to succeed in school and in life. Schools must communicate effectively to parents the pivotal role that they play in their child’s education. Parent nights, group emails and a list of resources may increase involvement, but they do not promote engagement, and certainly do not create a partnership. Schools at all levels must foster an enduring partnership between parents, family members, guardians and educators.


North Dakota Secondary Transition Project (NDSTP)

North Dakota Secondary Transition Project (NDSTP)

The purpose of the NDSTP is to serve youth with learning difficulties and their families to realize new transition possibilities. NDSTP provides resources, training and support to youth and families with disabilities on transition to college, post-secondary opportunities and employment. It will also teach how to plan for positive futures, and how to access supports and services after leaving high school.


Community Cafe

Community Cafe

Pathfinder Services of ND hosts and facilitates community cafés throughout the state to bring individuals together for a common purpose.

Our Community Cafés approach brings an environment that allows a network of collaborative dialogue. In turn this sparks leadership to build relationships, enabling individuals to see new ways to make a difference within their communities.
