The LEND Family Discipline Network (LFDN), in partnership with the Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC), is sponsoring a four-part webinar series during the month of May. Topics are based on the LFDN's 2019 white paper, "Fabric not Fringe: Weaving Family Involvement throughout Training and Practice for Professionals and Advocates Working with Individuals with Disabilities and Special Health Care Needs." This white paper approaches family involvement from the perspective of the family discipline itself, and the ongoing paradigm shift in family-centered care--from fringe to fabric.
