CTCDD: Connecticut Partners in Policy Making

Connecticut Partners in Policy Making


Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Partners in Policymaking Class!

Partners in Policymaking training teaches people to be leaders in shaping policy for people with disabilities and their families. Graduates of past Partners in Policymaking training in Connecticut are recognized as skilled and capable leaders in disability issues in their communities and in the state. Thirty participants will be chosen for the 2019 class. One half of the participants will be parents or family members of children with disabilities and one half will be individuals with disabilities. The Connecticut Partners in Policymaking training consists of seven weekend training sessions with nationally recognized speakers and state experts in disability issues. All training is provided at no cost to participants, including the cost of the hotel and all meals. 

This year we will hold two sections: one for caregivers and self-advocates and one just for service provider agencies. For a copy of the application for caregivers and self-advocates click here. For a copy of the application for service provider agencies click here.

Now used in over 25 states across the country, Partners training fosters collaboration among people with disabilities, parents who have children with disabilities, and policy makers at national, state and local levels. Connecticut’s program is a collaborative effort of the CT Developmental Disabilities Network, which consists of the CT Council on Developmental Disabilities, the Disability Rights Connecticut, Inc. and the University of Connecticut Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
