The Pennsylvania Training Partnership Announces a Free Family Training in Your Area

Presented by MENTORS FOR SELF DETERMINATION: This session is led by Partnership trainers.

Building Supports: What to Do While You Wait

We live in a rapidly changing world with tight budgets and shrinking resources. There are long waiting lists for paid services through the Intellectual Disability system, but our families need help now.

In this workshop for family members we will:

  • Consider what your family needs right now to help make a better quality of life
  • Brainstorm together about how, where and who in our networks and communities can help meet our needs instead of using paid support or while we wait for paid support
  • Learn about Circles of Support and approaches to building natural support
  • Begin developing a plan for finding the help we need
