Family participation in education and healthcare leads to better outcomes for children and families.
In both the school and healthcare settings, family engagement leads to better outcomes. When families understand the expectations for parent engagement, they can participate and partner to a higher degree.
Parents often don’t know where to begin when it comes to advocating for their children in the school and hospital settings. Madvocator provides training and services to families who want to improve relationships for better education and for safer, more effective healthcare.
Madvocator’s school- and healthcare-centered advocacy programming engages families in building communication and participation practices that build mutually beneficial relationships that promote the best outcomes for children and families.
