Reach for the stars conference and disability resource fair
March 30 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is a FREE opportunity for parents and professionals to come together for an exciting one-day event packed with speakers and a variety of local resources and vendors. Youth are encouraged to attend! We will have a youth panel with diverse disabilities sharing their experiences of their journey to self-advocacy.
The time is here to get registered for the Annual Regional Conference. This year it is at Region 15 ESC! We will have a resource fair set up with lots of great resources. Joseph Thomas Foundation, Amerigroup, West Texas Rehab Center, Shape of Behavior, Disability Connections, San Angelo, TX, Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas and many more great agencies!
We will have John Thomas speaking about his life growing up and telling us also about his WONDERFUL organization that is helping so many families in West Texas, Shelly McAda Bailey from MAXIMUS talking about Medicaid Managed care, Bill Dean with TWC StudentHireAbility and how to utilize their program, along with a youth panel sharing their insight about what they wish parents and educators knew about their special education journey, life after high school and transitioning.
We want to thank Amerigroup for sponsoring our lunch for this event! We really appreciate all they do to support us!
