Specialized Training of Military Parents (STOMP) is a federally funded Parent Training and Information Center established to assist military Families who have children with special educational or health needs. This training began in 1985, it is a project of Washington's, Parents Are Vital in Education (PAVE), and is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Education.
STOMP, a parent-directed project exists to empower military parents, individuals with disabilities, and service providers with knowledge, skills, and resources so that they might access services to create a collaborative environment for Family and professional partnerships without regard to geographic location.
The staff of the Specialized Training of Military Parents Project are parents of children who have disabilities and have experience in raising their children in military communities and traveling with their spouses to different locations.
