Family Mentor Program
The focus of the Georgia Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (GaLEND) Program’s Family Mentoring Program is to provide trainees with the opportunity to learn directly from people with disabilities and their family members. Trainees visit with families in their homes to learn what their lives are really like. The goal is that the trainees will develop an increased understanding not just of daily challenges, but also about the strengths, gifts, joys and priorities. Through the sharing in different family activities, the trainees will be introduced to various service delivery systems and be given the opportunity to examine how they respond to individual and family needs and perspectives.
