Upcoming STOMP Workshops
Specialized Training of Parents, or STOMP, provides one and two-day in-person workshops and one-hour webinars throughout the United States and overseas for military families and military personnel. Topics include: rights and responsibilities, advocacy, SSI/Medicaid, TRICARE/ECHO/ABA, wills, guardianships and special needs trusts, networking, and IEP and 504.

The workshops and webinars are funded by the Army, Navy and Air Force who determine the locations and workshop or webinar topics per installation.
