Feedback:

We had the privilege of having Roberta Dunn, Executive Director, Family and Community Together (FACT), recently provide a training for our Prevention staff. She was the perfect blend of insight, compassion, and humor, not to mention…. a wealth of information!” We all came away inspired and informed!  –  Life Works NW

In our district effort of continuous improvement, a key piece of professional development for special education staff is to hear from parent perspective delivered in a professional manner. FACT is a leader in this work, and their perspective is invaluable to delivering professional training to our staff. We have had FACT present to our gen ed staff, they have attended our annual resource fair for parents, and they have come to our district to deliver high-quality professional development to our special education staff. FACT is a valued and necessary partner in our work, as we place a high value on collaborative efforts toward improved outcomes for students with disabilities.  – Michael Salitore, Director of the Office of Supported Education for Molalla River School District
