ABOUT

The Center for Family Involvement works with families to increase their skills as advocates, mentors and leaders so that families, children and young adults with disabilities can lead the lives they want.

The CFI blog is a place where families and individuals can come for inspiration, ideas, and camaraderie. It’s also a safe place to vent and commiserate when needed.

You may notice there are a lot of empty spaces right now. That’s because we’re brand new and we’re building. This is a collaborative website. We want to involve families! So please comment and send ideas. If you want to share something more substantial, contact us and we’ll find a way to publish it here. If there’s something you want to know more about, let us know and we’ll do the research and get it on here for you.

Living in the disability community is such a unique experience. We want this blog to reflect that, to share stories about what it’s like to be part of such a special club.

  1. Hey! I’ve seen Erin Croyle’s speech to her local school board and posted it to our own FB page: The National Catholic Board on Full Inclusion. Erin, you are simply fantastic and I am so grateful for your advocacy and your passion…know we would be besties. Keep fighting the fight…keep speaking up…some day soon Arlo will speak up and it will rock your world. Recently, my son Patrick (who is 18, has Down Syndrome and is applying to colleges) gave a co-presentation about inclusive higher ed with me. Watching Patrick speak to a room full of about 100 people was watching Kyrptonite in action. They were speechless…it was soul-nourishing and exactly what the room needed. Congrats to you!!

    PS Our website has an entire tab on the educational research supporting inclusion and another tab on the research that shows the harmful effects of segregation…please use it and share widely.
