This workshop will share strategies to help you say what you need to say, and do what you need to do in order to find, apply for and obtain what is needed for your family member with a disability and for your whole family as well. For agency staff, this training will help you advocate for the individuals you work with and learn strategies you can pass on to their families. Become the best advocate possible!
