Event Details


Your son or daughter is on a path toward the future. 

Have you thought about where that trail is taking you and your loved one?

How does the way we introduce our family member influence his/her route? 

Negatively? Positively? 

What can you do to make it a positive journey?

Join us!

  • Learn about person centered practices

  • Create a one page positive profile of your son and daughter, a way of introducing your loved one to school personnel, medical professionals, support staff, friends, and more

  • Use your one page profile to help others see beyond disability to the person you love.



For more information on one page profiles - and to begin thinking about how you might use one for someone you love! -  click here

Family to Family Network

We are a parent organization dedicated to Creating Success for Children with Disabilities by Empowering their families with information, referral, training & support as families navigate the complex education, health care and social service systems.  By empowering families with knowledge, their children can graduate and work, continue education after HS, or live as independently as possible. When families can create a clear vision for their children's future - Success is possible!
