About the Family Action Network


The Family Action Network provides information about opportunities for education, training and leadership development to members who would like to contribute their voice to improve systems for people with disabilities and special health care needs in Wisconsin. Members are encouraged to share their ideas as informed, effective and knowledgeable participants in policy and systems change to help achieve family/self-determination, independence, productivity, integration and inclusion in all facets of community life. Systems change happens when family members are partners in the development, implementation and evaluation of policies and systems of supports and services. Information shared on this list does not represent a position or endorsement of specific positions by the list serv host. This listserv is collaboration between the Waisman Center, University Center of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities, Family Voices of Wisconsin, Disability Rights Wisconsin and the Board for People with Developmental Disabilities.
