“PEN enables parents and teachers to better understand the others' perspectives and work—together—in the best interests of the child. PEN offers an unparalleled collection of meetings, lectures and seminars that are receiving national attention.”
— Rick Lavoie

Visit EdRevSF.org for information about EdRev, our annual gathering at AT&T Park, San Francisco.
EdRev 2017 will take place Saturday April 22nd!

There are many ways to get involved with PEN and the people who believe in and support our mission. Join our honored group of community supporters! PEN’s successful model of offering low- or no-cost programs that bring together students, families and teachers impacted by learning and attention issues has directly supported over 20,000 people and formed the basis for communities of education, support and understanding throughout the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Sacramento and Phoenix, AZ.

DONATE

We rely on your generosity to directly support our programs. Your donations effect real change in the lives of kids with learning and attention differences.

In 2015, your donations will help more students across the country find a path to success through self-understanding, self-advocacy, and the support of an educated community of parents and professionals. That's what PEN does—but we can't do it alone. Click here for Ways to Give
