LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD - NEW MEMBER RECRUITMENT FOR 2016!
The Sherlock Center is looking for individuals with disabilities and family members of individuals with disabilities to participate as Sentinels and members of their Sentinels Advisory Committee. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Jeremy Nascimento, Sentinels Facilitator.
About the Sherlock Sentinels
The Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities is a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). As a UCEDD, we are required to have a consumer advisory committee.
Sherlock Sentinels are members of our consumer advisory committee.
Sherlock Sentinels are adults with disabilities and family members of children with disabilities who want to share their experiences with the Sherlock Center and one another. Sentinels reflect the diverse communities in Rhode Island. This is not an advocacy group, but rather an opportunity to help the Sherlock Center understand the needs of individuals and families.
New members are welcome to join. As a Sentinel, you will be asked to complete several short surveys a year to tell us about the successes and challenges in your life. The information you share will help the Sherlock Center to decide what to target for change. The Sherlock Center will also hold two presentations each year on topics of interest to Sentinels.
The Sherlock Sentinels Advisory Committee is a group of up to 20 Sentinels who meet bi-monthly at the Sherlock Center. The Core Committee helps to plan activities for Sherlock Sentinels and work on projects adopted by the Committee. Advisory Committee members also participate in an annual review of the Sherlock Center's five-year plan and are asked to provide feedback on specific Sherlock Center activities throughout the year.
Sentinels interested in becoming an Advisory Committee member must apply and participate in an interview. New members will be selected based on their interests, experiences, and ability to contribute to the work of the Advisory Committee.
