February 19th, 2020 – It Starts with a Dream…A Big Bodacious Dream!
Roberta will share the importance of dreaming big dreams as you set your sights on what adult life might look like for your young person experiencing disability. There is no time to feel stuck so let’s explore self-determination, dignity of risk, and the importance of having high expectations and trusting humanity. Adulthood is around the corner…and you got this!
Roberta Dunn has been a parent advocate and leader in the disability community since the birth of her son twenty-seven years ago. Roberta is the Executive director of FACT Oregon, the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) designated Parent Training and Information center (PTI) for Oregon which is dedicated to empowering Oregon families experiencing disability offering family support that is “by families for families.” It does so with focused work in three interconnected areas: expanding awareness, growing community, and equipping families. The outcome is families with high expectations for their child and a vision for the future where all communities are accessible, welcoming, and embrace that disability is natural.
