Now is the Time for Vision: A Workshop with Darcy Elks Zoom Conference Platform
October 13 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join a deeply passionate and committed change agent, master global SRV expert, and strong parent advocate as we explore the idea of trajectory and vision. Decision that are made by families early in the lives of their sons and daughters with disability often set the stage for the future. In this two hour workshop, we’ll draw from Darcy’s deep experience and that of the families who join to discover and build on positive and possible inclusive futures for their children of any age.
Families, people with disabilities, and human service workers have learned that an essential tool in bringing about a full, meaningful, included life is having a well-defined and articulated vision to focus, guide, and inspire action in the face of attitudinal obstacles and other set-backs. This workshop will help participants to clearly conceptualize their vision and encourage everyone to “keep their eyes on the prize” and not acquiesce to prevailing standards of what is “realistic.” The personal experiences of individuals and families will be shared; barriers identified, and successful strategies for overcoming them will be brainstormed.
