Family Partnership Advisor
Sylvie Zebroff is CLBC’s first Family Partnership Advisor. She has rich experience in the disability field, and is the proud mom to her son, James, who lives with severe autism. Sylvie’s responsibilities include talking and meeting with family members around the Province, to listen and learn about how CLBC’s family-friendly practices can be strengthened and improved. Sylvie also meets regularly with local, regional and provincial family groups and organizations, and is in the process of collecting success stories from families and adult sons and daughters about innovative service and supports, to share with other families and individuals as they engage in the process of short and long-term planning. Sylvie reports back on a quarterly basis to the CLBC Senior Management team about what she has learned from families and other stakeholders.
Part of the Family Partnership Advisor’s role is to support family capacity-building and resiliency; Sylvie realizes the richness of family experience and the power of networking, and is committed to connecting with family members whenever possible to share resource information and provide links to other parent organizations or community initiatives. She also works in close partnership with Jessica Humphrey, the Self-Advocate Advisor and Tracey Michell, the Aboriginal Advisor; there is a commitment to ensure family and individual feedback is shared as widely and well as possible.
Sylvie will be adding and updating links of interest for families and individuals.
