Hi All,

On behalf of the Department on Disability Services, the Developmental Disabilities Council, the Georgetown University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Project ACTION!, the Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities and Health Services for Children with Special Needs, I am pleased to announce our next DC Supporting Families Community of Practice meeting on Wednesday, September 17th, generously hosted by DLA Piper, LLP.  I hope that you can join us and will help us spread the word. 

At the meeting, we will focus on Advocacy Across the Lifespan, offering interactive issue advocacy training and tips for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.  We will also provide updates on our progress in advancing person and family centered thinking, starting up a D.C. Parent to Parent chapter, and establishing a Family Support Council to advise government agencies.

As a small thank you for your time, we will be serving lunch and providing stipends for those who qualify.  Please feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have or recommendations about others to invite.  Please also share this invitation widely.  We look forward to growing our State Team and including new family members of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

Thank you!
