    WA State Developmental Disabilities Resources - Eva Rooks

    in Family

    Where do we go in Washington state to get connected when it comes to helping individuals living with autism? What services are accessible from the state? How do we plug in? How do we navigate the often confusing and complex systems maze?
    Good information leads to better choices and decisions for people on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities and differences, yet survey data shows many families say they do not get enough information to effectively participate in planning services for their family members. 
    This is of concern to Autism Empowerment and other advocacy and support organizations that believe clear, concise information from trusted sources is critical to every family’s ability to access resources and care for individuals on the autism spectrum.
    Listen in today as Autism Empowerment Radio interviews Eva Rooks, Communication and Planning Manager for the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council. 
    We will talk about current priorities for the DDC and we'll learn how to plug into and navigate the WA state Informing Families, Building Trust website, blog and informational outreach.
    Sponsored by the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council, in collaboration with the Division of Developmental Disabilities and others, the IFBT goal is to provide information about issues, services and supports that make a difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

    in Family

    Interested in Autism and Developmental Disabilities Advocacy in Washington? So is Autism Empowerment!  
    Tune in as John interviews Autism Empowerment Executive Director, Karen Krejcha as she talks about her recent weekend in Olympia. As part of a year long Disabilities Leadership Development Program, she traveled to Olympia with other self-advocates, parents and professionals. She had the opportunity to receive training, network with other advocates and no-profits, tour the State Capitol, share lunch with local legislators, learn about the legislative process and practice advocacy skills and testifying before Congress.
    We will chat about a variety of topics of interest that came up during the training including Seclusion / Aversion rooms in Washington schools, the No Paid Services Caseload, Respite Care, Companion Homes, Vocational Traning and help for individuals experiencing cultural communication barriers. 
    Even if you don't live in Washington, you will likely find this show valuable in terms of understanding more about what kind of services our government provides versus what is provided through the private sector.
