2008 Global Forum for Inclusion's International Gathering of Families
Families play a unique role in the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities by providing lifelong support and relationships. They are often a bridge in realizing the rights and full inclusion of their family member with a disability. Further, families have often acted as change agents in making their communities and countries more inclusive.
