Around the state, or in the comfort of your home, we have learning sessions to help you advocate for and navigate the many services available to your child and family.

Learning Sessions

For children with intellectual and developmental disability practicing choice-making is especially important because it can lead to a more self-determined life as an adult. This means an adult with connections to the community, a sense of empowerment and a sense of safety because they know their opinions matter. We have everything you need to start choice-making for your child.
