It's hard enough for parents to navigate this oftentimes scary and confusing world, but parents who have children with disabilities often find themselves intimidated and lost. In this 1.5 hour webinar, participants will learn about the world of advocacy and the ways in which it is possible to find and receive the services necessary for their children to thrive. This webinar will include types, effective strategies, case studies, examples, and motivating and insightful conversation pertaining to advocacy. It is our hope that participants will leave this webinar feeling prepared and ready to face the challenges that they encounter head-on and to teach others how to do the same.
