Below that photo is the SAPNA Self Advocacy Power Network for All Logo. On the right, text reads: POWER TALK WITH ODP Get the answers you need to speak up and live your life, your way.

Fri. Sept. 8 10am to 12pm

Do you have questions about or issues with the supports
and services for people with intellectual disabilities and
or autism (ID/A) in PA? Join us for our monthly chat with
staff from the PA Office of Development Programs, the
government office that oversees and funds those
supports and services. People with ID/A in PA can speak
up with ODP staff, and others are welcome to listen and
learn. We start the calls reviewing the questions we
already gathered and sent to ODP, then talk about them
with ODP staff. After the ODP staff leave, you are invited
to stay on for a bit while we discuss what we heard, and
gather questions to send to ODP for next month.
