We have had the opportunity to perform with the Naumburg Orchestra at Lincoln Center in New York City, but the performance we're most proud of is our involvement in Partners in Policymaking. Partners has directly affected our family's attitude toward and understanding of our son's abilities and capabilities. A long sought after communications breakthrough has occurred. The entire scope and mission of our lives have been changed by the Partners experience.
A fountain of information, an awareness that the rights of people with disabilities must be protected - this is what I learned from Partners. This will all be possible when the public is also informed.
My daddy is disabled due to a stroke and I am the mother of a daughter with a developmental disability and a son with a learning disability. Family leadership Project provided the avenue to me to access programs and to understand the Iaws. It is a very worthwhile project that should continue!
