Family and Individual Involvement and Support

It is a strategic goal of the Partnership for People with Disabilities to promote community acceptance and support for individuals with disabilities and their families. Our work is guided by the principles of self determination and person-centered practices. The Partnership is committed to supporting the individual in making his or her voice heard.

Through self-advocacy activities at the Partnership, youth and adults with disabilities have information and support to speak for themselves and be leaders in their home communities and in state-level activities. The Partnership is committed to helping agencies and organizations deliver person-centered and user-friendly services and supports in neighborhoods and communities.

In addition, the Partnership works with families and parents of individuals with disabilities, and with the professionals who support them, in acknowledging and embracing the family’s central role in improving the lives of individuals with disabilities. The Partnership supports families in their efforts to increase their skills as decision-makers, mentors, and leaders.
