Thank you to the ENTIRE @RISenate for its support of long-term rate reform for providers of services to people with disabilities.

This legislation is gaining bipartisan support because it impacts thousands of Rhode Islanders.

Let’s pass S2311 this session.

What a way to end spirit week! WWHS has about 1,250 people in it on a daily basis (students & staff combined). Imagine spending 180 days a year in a building that’s such a fantastic place to be, even on the hard days?!? Today was a good day! (Even if the seniors wore purple 🤷🏻‍♀️)

A great job coach can make a difference for people with disabilities seeking employment! Our leader Laura Owens just spoke in a webinar, Job Coaching 101: A Toolkit for New Coaches by the Hawaii Department of Education, for Educational Assistants & Behavioral Therapists.

Thx for the RT @RITransition. We ❤️ what @AbbyHughesSPED wrote too about how this tool leads to empowering conversations btw #childrenwithdisabilities and their #families! Families could be resources in transition planning too! Its not who you know, but who knows you! Thx again!
