Come join other family leaders for these exciting sessions:
The Importance of Family Leadership and How to get Connected – You will learn why effective family leadership and building relationships with other families and professionals can make a difference in the life of your loved ones with special healthcare needs and how you can ensure that they are receiving the services they need.
Your Experience is Important – Learn to Share on Boards & Committees – Have you ever asked yourself, “Am I ready to serve on a board or committee?” In this session you will learn the basics about the different types of boards and committees, the “does” and “don’ts” of serving and more importantly, why your voice of experience is needed.
Telling Your Story Specific to Your Audience – Do you have an important meeting coming up? Maybe it’s an IEP meeting or an appointment with your loved one’s doctor, or an agency case manager. This session is designed to help you organize and share personal information in a format that promotes awareness about your family
member so that he or she is receiving the services that best meet his or her needs.
Family/Professional Partnerships – Legislative Advocacy – Whether it is your loved one’s principal or a legislator, building relationships takes time. The presenters will talk about the importance of getting to know the people who have the power to make and change policy at the local and state level.
