The DDC has developed this section of our website to provide important information specifically to assist families of children and adults with disabilities. Our Family Forum is a new monthly column and blog called “Ask Celest” featuring Celest Martin. Celest is a DDC Executive Committee Member, Chair of the Systems Advocacy Committee (SAC), professor of Disability Studies at URI and a parent of a young man who has a disability. This month’s segment is about Celest and her son Andrew’s personal involvement with “Self-Directed Supports”.
We have compiled information that we think may be helpful to family members in the following areas: Birth to Teens, Transition, Adult Supports, Things You Really Should Know About and Training.
