Dream Big! Advocating for an Inclusive Life for Your Child

Join us as two parents share their experiences in advocating for inclusive education for their children. Hear how these two families worked towards the same vision for their children with extremely different needs. They will share their stories of how they fought for their children’s rights, overcame barriers and kept their sanity in the process. By the end of this session, participants will be able to: -Identify strategies to advocate for an inclusive educational program for their child. -Creatively overcome barriers and obstacles to inclusion. -Support your child as they learn and grow into adulthood. -Help their child find their own identity. -Stay focused on the vision and not get distracted by the hurdles along the way.
