Notes from the P2P Webinar November 3, 2016

“How has Parent to Parent helped me to develop as a parent leader?”

by Alaina Kube, Parent to Parent Coordinator - The Arc of Snohomish County ..."Parent to Parent was a natural fit for me as I was able to build on my personal experiences and obtain the training and tools needed to support other families who have children with special needs. I now have an increased understanding of disability services and am able to better navigate systems and advocate for my family and the families we support at The Arc of Snohomish County. But most importantly, I am able to help families connect with each other and realize that they are not alone!"
