Partners in Policymaking

Partners in Policymaking

In 2002, ZenMation embarked on a five-year partnership with the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities.  Our mission?  To convert key components of the Governor’s Council’s award-winning ten-weekend national training program, Partners in Policymaking, into an engaging e-learning experience.

The result is a five-course on-line training curriculum designed to help self-advocates and parents of children with developmental disabilities advocate effectively for systemic change and fight for equal education, employment and housing opportunities for themselves, their children and their families:

  • Partners in Education
  • Partners in Living
  • Partners in Time
  • Partners in Employment
  • Partners in Making Your Case

The courses are highly interactive, practical and fully accessible to people with disabilities – a key success factor.  The courses provide crucial, easy-to-use information, tools, techniques and resources.  The courses are used in many academic institutions and have been completed by thousands of self-advocates, parents, teachers and social services professionals around the world.
