Navigating and Negotiating FSCD and FMS (PDD): An advocacy workshop for families

Inclusion Edmonton Region and Inclusion Grande Prairie are excited to be offering this advocacy workshop.

Navigating and Negotiating FSCD and FMS (PDD): An advocacy workshop for families

Speaker: Bruce Uditsky, M.Ed. CEO Emeritus, Inclusion Alberta

Many families are finding it increasingly difficult to navigate and negotiate FSCD for children with disabilities and similarly to obtain FMS funding for adults with developmental disabilities.  Both Alberta’s fiscal challenges, which are now further complicated by the Pandemic, have added to the difficulties too many families routinely encounter in seeking support either for their child or their adult family member with developmental disabilities. The purpose of this workshop is to ensure families know their rights and choices, understand the legislated purpose of both FSCD and FMS and how these are not being lived up to by the government, learn about the benefits and risks associated with appealing government decisions, prepare themselves for negotiating supports as effectively as possible and the necessity for collective action.

Bruce Uditsky was instrumental in the development of both FSCD and FMS as provincial programs and brings a wealth of experience both as a parent himself and someone who has supported thousands of families.
