The Parent Leadership Project was originated by parents and is staffed by parents whose children have received Early Intervention Services.
Created through the generous support of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the lead agency for the statewide Early Intervention system, the Project works in collaboration with Early Intervention Programs, the Massachusetts Interagency Coordinating Council, and families who receive Early Intervention services for three main purposes:
- To develop an informed parent constituency;
- To promote leadership and lifelong advocacy skills for parents and family members; and,
- To facilitate family participation to ensure that Early Intervention Services are family-centered,
- To support EI programs to identify, train and mentor families to take on roles across the EI and Early Childhood system.
