All people with disabilities or chronic health concerns have an innate right to be included in every aspect of family and community life, including the opportunity to live independently or in a family home, to attend schools with their siblings and their peers, and to access the full spectrum of community choices.
FACT Parent to Parent (FACT P2P) pairs parents with trained mentors who can provide support, encouragement, and information on ways to advocate for your child and family on everything from everyday concerns to IEP support.
In these times of incredible fiscal challenges, it is critical that families raising children experiencing disabilities keep apprised of how their school districts are addressing the budget shortfalls and how this will affect children receiving special education. FACT Family Advocacy Network recommends:
Family and Community Together (FACT) is a family leadership organization for individuals and their families experiencing disability, working collaboratively to facilitate positive change in policies, systems and attitudes, through family support, advocacy and partnerships.
