We need your feedback! Please take the following survey.

The Family Empowerment and Disability Council invite you to respond to an annual evaluation survey on family empowerment center (FEC) activities.

FECs are funded by the California Department of Education to provide services to families with children with disabilities who are between the ages of 3 and 22 to ensure that parents, guardians, and families of children and young adults with disabilities have access to accurate information, specialized training, and peer-to-peer support. This survey asks questions about information, training, and support that you have received from your family empowerment center (SFCD).
