Michigan Alliance for Families
The Michigan Alliance for Families provides information, support, and education to families of children and young adults with disabilities and special education needs, from birth to age 26. The Alliance also helps parents to become more active in their child’s school as a way of improving services and results for children and young adults with special education needs.
The Michigan Alliance for Families helps parents understand the rights of their children and to effectively communicate and advocate for their children’s needs.
Michigan Alliance for Families mentors and supports existing and emerging parent leaders involved with Local Interagency Coordinating Councils (LICCs), Parent Advisory Committees (PACs), the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), the Statewide Interagency Coordinating Council (SICC), and other groups. In addition to the work they do with and on behalf of children and families, the Alliance helps the other IDEA Grant Funded Initiatives to facilitate their work with families.
