I'm Determined For Parents
Welcome to the Parents page of the I’m Determined website. Self-determination is about youth with disabilities taking control of their lives. Strategies to assist your son or daughter in developing self-determination skills can be found here. There are several main sections under the Parents tab:
Resources - All resources tagged for parents can be found here. Once you go to the resources page, you can sort them by filetype (Word, Excel, PDF, Powerpoint, Audio). Everything is free to use, download, and reproduce for the needs of your child.
Videos - All videos tagged for parents can be found here. Once you go to the videos page, you can sort them by open captioned or no captions.
Resource Submission - Some of the best ideas and tools come from you. If you have something that you think would benefit the I'm Determined community, send it to us. Many of the resources that end up on the website have been created by parents like you.
Youth & Parent Summit - During the summit, parents have separate sessions to attend, focusing on parental support, resources available to parents, and networking with other parents. Parent attendance is based on their child applying and being accepted to the summit. There is not an application that parents fill out. For more information on the Youth and Parent summit, click here.
