Individuals and family members of children, teens and young adults with special needs/disabilities are their best advocates and most powerful change agents.

The most powerful tool to have to create change, whether it is at an individualized education plan meeting, person-centered plan meeting, or influencing policy makers in family-centered systems change, is YOUR individual or family story.

This workshop helps people to understand the power an individual and family story has to create positive change in all aspects of the systems and services which will create a lasting legacy for families to follow. Plus, they learn how to organize, articulate and present strengths and needs in a format that provides your team with the knowledge they need to assist you in producing family-centered services that respects your family’s attributes, knowledge and desires.
