Michigan Family Voices offers collaborative learning opportunities in local communities through the state. You can download flyers which provide details and REGISTER for each opportunity online.
Who Should Attend Michigan Family Voices Collaborative Learning Opportunities? Individuals and family members of young children, teen and young adults with specials needs/disabilities (including: youth guardians: adoptive, biological, foster and step-parents, domestic partners who co-parent, grandparents, siblings, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews, cousins, neighbors, communities, religious leaders and any other person the individual defines as a family member), organizations and service providers who work with families of young children, teen, young adults, and individuals with disabilities.
We encourage individuals and families to invite people who provide support and services to you and your family. Providers are encouraged to invite individuals and families you support and serve. Forming partnerships between people served and those providing services is crucial in building collaboration and partnering in decision-making at all levels with individuals and families of children and youth with special needs and/or disabilities.
