2017 Alabama disABILITY Conference
It's Alabama's most comprehensive conference for those affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities, and those who are leaders in the field. New this year, the conference is in Montgomery to make it easier for advocates of all kinds to visit their lawmakers while learning new information and navigating vital resources. Those invited to attend include self-advocates, parents, caregivers, direct care professionals, agency leaders, lawmakers and service providers.
This year's theme is "Expect, Navigate, Achieve." We'll focus in on expecting more inclusive communities so all people and all abilities are engaged in life areas like employment, housing, education, recreation, and relationships. We'll navigate the resources needed to meet these expectations and build support systems to ensure self-advocates and their caregivers know about them. Finally, we'll set ourselves up to achieve success, and celebrate the outcomes that come with it.
Join us as we expect, navigate and achieve great things for those with I/DD during the 2017 Alabama DisABILITY Conference.
