As a parent, do you ever feel overwhelmed by the professionals or experts? Joan Reidy, Co-ordinator of the Victorian Parent Advocacy Collective, discusses parent advocacy and the role of parent advocates in empowering parents to fully participate in the integration process.

“In order to have equalised relationships you have to provide balanced membership.”

This module aims to:

  • Clarify the role of the parent advocate in the Integration Support group process.
  • Inform parents of their rights and empower them in the Integration Support Group.
