You Can Help Shape the Future! Join Us for an Important Discussion.

AADD, in partnership with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, is organizing five Conversations That Matter events in Athens (10/1), Macon (10/5), Gainesville (10/22), Columbus (10/27), Albany (11/5), and Metro Atlanta (11/12).

Parents and family members of children and adults with developmental disabilities, self-advocates, teachers, school administrators, transition specialists, developmental disabilities professionals, legislators, transition councils, business owners, and community leaders are encouraged to come engage in purposeful conversation about the following topics:

  • Life planning trends and new tools to prepare for the road ahead
  • Employment and meaningful day services: What could it look like?
  • New definitions and rates for waiver services: What to expect

The program will include a short  presentation on the topic, group discussion, idea gathering, and  Q&A. Food and beverage will be provided.
