Education Advocacy – Parent Advocacy

Parents are the best advocates for their children. No one knows your child better than you.  If you have a child with a disability or special health care needs, you have to do some extra learning about the specific laws, regulations, and supports and services that are available for your family.  You don’t have to be a genius to learn these things.  We are here to help you.  

Self-Advocacy – For individuals with a disability/Special Health Care Needs

Self-Advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself, making your own decisions about your own life, learning how to get information so that you can understand things that are of interest to you, finding out who will support you in your journey, knowing your rights and responsibilities, problem solving, listening and learning, reaching out to others when out need help and friendship, and learning about self-determination.

Advocacy – System Change

When a community of people work together to change policies, rules or laws which determine how services are provided to and for individuals with disabilities and special health care needs, it is called systems advocacy
