Our workshops are available to educators and community professionals serving families living with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who are interested in providing a forum for parents, staff, or the public to come and learn. We offer information on how to be an effective partner and advocate for those affected with disabilities.
We welcome organizations, schools, churches, and agencies to contact us to help raise awareness about educational strategies, laws, and resources that are put in place to support parents caring for children with special healthcare needs.
