Upcoming virtual event:

Undivided in Conversation with Parent & Author Kelley Coleman: Everything No One Tells You About Parenting a Disabled Child

Monday, March 11, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. PDT

 Venue: FB Live
Price: FREE

As heard on the podcasts Brave Together, Parent Footprint, Just Two Dads, and Talk About It, Kelley Coleman is an author and advocate who has spent over a decade navigating public benefits, insurance, and education for her child with multiple disabilities. “No one knows how to do any of this. Until you need to know it all yesterday,” Kelley says.

Few people think about advocacy for our children as filling out paperwork, but sometimes we just have to sit down and complete applications for the benefits and programs they need. Join us in conversation with Kelley Coleman, who will give us practical tips and advice (and a pep talk!) on how we can advocate to make sure our kids get what they need.
