It’s important to use this resource in a way that will be most meaningful for you and your group. There are 8 sections to this guide. If you need to use just one section, then use only that section! If you want to take the book as a whole curriculum, that works too. This Guidebook can be used in any manner that will help you meet your needs and to better participate at the table with other decision makers. Remember, this is your journey! Let’s get started.
This section explores opportunities for you to make a difference, have a better understanding of where to begin, how to get involved, how you can share in the decision making process, and who can serve on these groups.
When serving on a decision making group, it is important to know what your role is as a family representative and member of the group, what ways you might represent the perspective of other families, and how to share your family story.
