PCTI Annual Schedule/Locations

Most PCTIs are held once weekly for 9 weeks in various locations across Massachusetts. For those unable to commit to a class of that length, it is offered in June in a one-week condensed, intensive format. 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. Classes often fill completely: 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. 

Pre-Registration is required, no walk-in registration permitted.

Attendance on Day 1 of class is required.  Register ONLY if you can attend the first day.

Registration closes one business day prior to class or when the class roster is full. For waitlist information contact crussell@fcsn.org.
