Parents of the Panhandle Information Network (POPIN)
This program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education,
Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) provides
PTI services to the Panhandle of Florida from Escambia
to Alachua County. These PTI services help to ensure that parents of children with the full range of disabilities have the training and information they need to prepare their children for not only school, but to be able to lead productive, independent lives to the fullest extent possible.
The purpose of the program is to ensure through collaboration that individuals have full access to family-driven support, education, information, resources, and advocacy and to serve families of children with disabilities, ages birth through 26, who have the full range of disabilities described in section 602(3) of IDEA.

The Parents of the Panhandle Information Network
offers free help and information to families of students
with disabilities and the professionals that serve
them. Our main focus is on the educational needs of
