Self-Advocate and Family Information Gathering Dates and Materials
The Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD) values the insight of individuals in services, self-advocates, and their families. A self-advocate is an individual with a disability who wants to talk about their experiences and help make DSPD services even better, whether or not they are currently receiving services. DSPD hosts quarterly Family and Self-Advocate Information Gatherings to provide information to individuals in services, self-advocates, and their families to help them understand what certain changes mean for them; and give them a place to provide input and share their thoughts. You can find information about the next gathering down below, along with resources and presentations from previous meetings. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
DSPD is looking for self-advocates and people who use our services to be a part of different work groups and committees. Please review the Self-Advocate Feedback Opportunities Flyer for more information.
