Launching This Month! Exciting new program at Imagine Art: Training 4 Transformation
Funded by a grant from the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities, we are pioneers in creating Peer Support here in Texas for individuals with developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities. This means to those of you who have DD and ID that you will have a community around you who cares to support you as you move toward the life YOU want for YOURSELF! And to those of you who don't, you will become a friend and supporter to those to do, as a Life Coach in development participant. This will be a dynamic, interactive community of artists working in a team to communicate the real issues and the real needs, and to get real stuff accomplished!
Saturday, September 22nd from 1-7pm we will begin. And one Saturday each month until May we will gather to participate in this exciting level one certification program, we call "Adventures of Advocacy". We will have experts in various topics of interest, to participate and be available to answer questions. We will create skits, paintings, mini-books, songs, poems, whatever it takes to BE HEARD! And be prepared for those "Person-Centered Planning Meetings"! You will learn what your rights are, and help blaze a trail for your friends. Get ready to saddle up and join us for this grand adventure! To apply to be a participant, contact Teel Montague at firstname.lastname@example.org
