Connecticut Parent Advocacy Center Workshop Recording

On April 17, 2024 the Collective welcomed Leona Adamczyk, CPAC’s Connecticut Family School Partnership Coordinator. CPAC is the Connecticut Parent Advocacy Center whose mission is to educate, support, and empower Connecticut’s diverse families of children and youth with any disability or chronic conditions, ages birth to 26, and the professionals who serve them.

Leona is the parent of three sons. Leona has worked with CPAC since 2018. She is a graduate of Next Steps, Partners in Policymaking, and the LEND program. Leona’s areas of interest include family engagement and facilitating connections between families and districts.

CPAC is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and language access for Connecticut families and youth with disabilities. They advocate at the federal, state, and local levels to help remove barriers that families and youth face when advocating for appropriate supports and services.

Every day, CPAC’s Parent Consultants provide individual training, support and empowerment for parents and professionals who reach out to them with questions about the education of their children and students. They provide training programs at no cost to families and educators across the state. They make available a wide range of accessible online training and information on their website and through social media. They work with a wide range of partners to reach out to families, youth, and educators to find and address the issues in the education and transition of students and young people from birth through age 26. CPAC is staffed by parents of children with disabilities who have training in, and personal experience with the law and disability issues.
