Family Education and Training

The best decisions in life are made when you have the best and most up to date information. Since our inception, Advocates has been providing information, training, and education to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families through our Family Support Services Training Grant and our Family Education and Training Waiver service.

We offer training on a variety of topics that are of interest to our community of individuals and families on such issues as Navigating the System of Developmental Disability Services, Educational Advocacy, Facilitated Communication, Sensory Integration, Employment, Benefits and SSI, Transition Planning, and Housing and Supportive Living Options.

In addition, as an organization governed by parents, we provide parent-to-parent peer support and advocacy assistance.
