A colleague recently referred me to a program that provides leadership training for people with developmental disabilities, parents and family members. It’s designed to provide participants knowledge about issues and policies related to disability so they may become effective leaders in policy development debates at all levels.
Partners in Policymaking is a national model with its NY program sponsored by the NYS Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. The program is free. To apply go to www.nyspip.org.
