Have you ever had a day when you wished there was someone who understood what it was like to raise a child with a disability?

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:

  • Be Prepared: Gain insights into how to be the best advocate you can by participating in an advocacy training
  • Get Involved: serve on budget committees and work groups; attend forums and information sessions
  • Connect: identify other families and pull your energy together to form a stronger alliance
  • Be Heard: tell your story; share at board meetings, meet with stakeholders and decision makers

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.
