Advocacy: They Have It. You Want It! Now What?
Online event (see link)
Families having a child with a disability are often confused, overwhelmed and frustrated about obtaining all appropriate programs, rights, entitlements and services. There are many emotions involved in dealing with “The powers that be” who seem to have all the power of providing the needed interventions. We will try to provide strategies, words, information and confidence so the parent/caregiver can become the best possible advocate for the child. This session will also help support professionals gain those same skills. Ultimately those skills will hopefully be transferred to the person with the disability to be a successful self-advocate.
