FACT Oregon believes that it is important to empower Oregon families in pursuit of a whole life by expanding awareness, growing community and equipping families. Julie Chick, a Program Coordinator for FACT Oregon, and a parent of a child who experiences disability said, “I personally use the information and tools provided by FACT Oregon to help me prepare for my son’s IEP meetings. I truly feel a part of the team.” A family that FACT Oregon supported shared, “I have faith in the work FACT Oregon is doing for my child by helping me become a better, more knowledgeable advocate.”
Families were asking for more opportunities to attend trainings provided by FACT Oregon. As a result, we decided to bring our trainings to communities all over the state. The Regional Conference allows families to attend all the trainings and lunchtime Resource Fair for free in one day! Continuing Education Credits available for professionals.
