The 2019 LEAD! Conference keynote speakers are Ricardo and Donna Thornton, a married couple living with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The Thorntons will share their story about how they met while in an institutionalized setting in the 1970s, how they became a couple, got married, and eventually had a son and raised a family.
The ADDP Training & Conference Committee is actively preparing for this upcoming event, which features morning and afternoon workshops, business vendors, lunch, and an awards ceremony. More than 800 people - front-line professionals, agency directors, self-advocates, family members, state agency personnel, and human service advocates - attended the 2018 event!
Stay tuned for more conference details, including registration information on the ADDP website, Facebook page, and on Twitter.
We hope to see you at the conference!
