PCTI Annual Schedule/Locations

PCTIs are held once weekly for 9 weeks in various locations across Massachusetts. Locations change annually and are established over the summer for the upcoming school year. 

We recommend that PCTI attendees have some familiarity with special education procedures. A list of free workshops presented by the Federation can be found here.

PCTI often fills quickly. We recommend registering early.  Preference will be given to youth with disabilities and family members of children with special needs who have registered at least two weeks before the class begins. Attendance on Day 1 of class is required.  Register only if you can attend the first day. Pre-Registration is required, no walk-in registration permitted. Registration closes one business day prior to class or when the class roster is full. For waitlist information contact crussell@fcsn.org.

Registration for our fall PCTI is now open! The course will take place at the Brockton Arc (1250 West Chestnut St., Brockton, MA 02301) and runs from 9:30 to 2:30 on 8 consecutive Wednesdays. Participants are expected to complete approximately 1.5 hours per week of additional coursework virtually. The virtual coursework will include videos, discussion boards, blogs, and other media that support and complement the course material.

This session will run September 18th, 25th, October 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and November 6th with November 13th reserved as a snow day. November 20th we will host an optional day for those who want to complete the internship. This final day will be held in the Boston office.
