Parents will learn vital information, techniques, resources, advocacy, and strategies for improving the lives of autistic and developmentally disabled children.

This is critical in the transient military community, where families often lack traditional support systems such as close-knit family, long-term friendships, and religious institutions. As trained parent advocates, they will receive ongoing training and support for effective community organizing and advocacy, ultimately striving for legislative change and policy shifts.
