Who are the Sherlock Sentinels?


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 persons with disabilities and families. The information shared by the Sentinels helps to guide the activities at the Sherlock Center.

How do Sherlock Sentinels work together with the Sherlock Center?

  • Sherlock Sentinels are asked to sometimes complete short surveys to tell the Sherlock Center about the successes and challenges in their lives.
  • Sherlock Sentinels are invited to gather twice a year (spring and fall) to participate in a presentation or event sponsored by the Sentinel Advisory Committee.
  • Sherlock Sentinels are asked to sometimes participate in forums to help the Sherlock Center to understand the needs of persons with disabilities and family members.
  • Sherlock Sentinels will receive the Sentinel Spotlight newsletter 2-3 times a year. The newsletter helps keep Sentinels informed of resources and upcoming events.
  • Some Sherlock Sentinels also participate on the Sentinels Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee meets every other month at the Sherlock Center. Sherlock Sentinels must apply to become an Advisory Committee Member. Learn more about the Advisory Committee.
