- Educate yourself on flexible supports and what they are so you know what you are able to request.
- Get involved legislatively; set up a meeting with your legislators,introduce yourself, let them know what challenges you face as an individual with a disability or special health care needs or as a family member of a person with a disability or special health care needs.
