Narrative

The Series focuses on supporting families and individuals to live in their communities as naturally and typically as desired. Applications from families with children or adult family members of any age who are Department of Developmental Services eligible are encouraged.

The Family Leadership Series has a two fold purpose. The first is to offer information about “best practices” for people with disabilities. The second is to assist families in creating a vision for their family member and a process to achieve the vision through leadership and advocacy. Each session is two days in length. Participants are required to attend all four of the sessions.
