Parents often don’t know where to begin when it comes to advocating for their children in the school and healthcare settings. Madvocator provides evidence-based training and tools to families who want to collaborate for better educational outcomes and for safer, more responsive healthcare.
In both the school and healthcare settings, family engagement and activation lead to better outcomes. When families understand what true engagement looks like, they can participate and partner to a higher degree.
Without family voices, our schools and healthcare settings cannot succeed in providing excellent, equitable outcomes.
Madvocator’s school and healthcare advocacy programs help families build communication and critical thinking skills that lead to mutually beneficial relationships and promote the best outcomes. Customized training is also available.
