Early Intervention Parent Leadership Project
The Parent Leadership Project,a project of the Office of Family Initiatives at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, was created to support parents whose children receive early intervention services. The Project’s main goal is to promote lifetime advocacy, leadership skills and the development of an informed parent constituency, which will encourage early intervention services to be increasingly family centered. The Project is a parent driven endeavor, which continually seeks family involvement and input regarding the needs of families enrolled in Early Intervention and is implemented by parents whose own children have received EI services.
