Hi, I would like to welcome everyone to Peer Mentoring with CDAH. I am a human being, a wife, a mother and a strong believer in the human rights of all in our community.
I have had incredible experiences throughout my life, followed a career caring for young children and am actively involved in lobbying for inclusiveness and respect for all. As a mother, my children all have dreams, achievements, friendships, arguments and failures. Living a full life has challenges and heartbreaks, it also brings about a sense of self. People with disabilities have every right to live their life their way with control and choice.
I would like to offer mentoring in:
Assisting people with disability and family members to build self-advocacy skills.
Supporting you to have your voice heard.
Assisting you through daunting government systems.
Helping parents get their head around early intervention.
Together let’s meet your goals so that you can have more choice and control in your or your family member’s life!
