March 29, 2016
2:00PM – 3:00PM ET
“This webinar, presented by Kim Musheno, Director of Public Policy at AUCD, offers students, trainees and early career professionals an orientation to the policy issues and current legislation one can expect to learn more about at the 2016 Disability Policy Seminar. Attendees will learn the basics of how to make an appointment to meet with Congressional representatives, and how to deliver a unified message about federally funded programs that benefit people with disabilities. Zipporah Levi-Shackleford, MA (AUCD Board Trainee Representative and West Virginia LEND trainee) and Brandon Eddy, MA, CF-SLP (Assistant Virtual Trainee and Oregon LEND trainee) will also share their experiences attending the Disability Policy Seminar, as well as provide tips on preparing for and making hill visits.
At the 2016 Seminar, hundreds of disability advocates from around the country will gather to discuss a wide range of public policy issues affecting people with disabilities and their families. We expect the following public policy issues will take center stage: Federal Funding, Medicaid and Community Living, Health Care, Social Security, Employment and Education, Autism CARES legislation, and Asset Development.
The webinar is intended for first-time attendees, students, trainees, and early career professionals planning to attend the Seminar.
