A Look Ahead Online
Feb 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
A Look Ahead is a quarterly mini conference series for individuals with disabilities, family members, the people who support them and the community at large.
We have great line up of presenters for this online event:
- Doni Green, of the North Central Texas Council of Governments, will present “Federal and State Services for People with Disabilities and their families”. This presentation will focus on services funded by the Older Americans Act and the State of Texas to support people with disabilities, older, adults, and their family caregivers.
- Rachel Neely, LMSW, the CDS Policy Lead for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, will present “Consumer Directed Services”. This presentation provides an introduction to the Consumer Directed Services option, or CDS, which allows individuals in Texas HHSC home and community-based programs the opportunity to self-direct some or all of their services.
- Ginger Mayeaux, MMSW, of The Arc of Texas, will present “87th Legislative Session and You”. During this presentation The Arc of Texas will discuss some of the important issues impacting Texans with IDD during the 87th Legislative Session and ways to share your story – regardless of where you are.
Upon purchasing a ticket to this event you’ll be provided with a link to participate in this webinar via Zoom. All funds will be used to support this event and future A Look Ahead conferences.
Limited stipends are available for individuals with disabilities and family members. Please email stipend requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
