About the training

The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) and the Designated State Entity (DSE) must work together. Don’t take our word for it – it’s the law! Whether you believe there is room for improvement or you feel as though you are at a total impasse, this training is designed to clarify what the law says about the roles and responsibilities of the SILCs and DSEs, along with practical examples of how you can each improve your relationship.

Presenters share real-world examples of how they built a strong, collaborative relationship after a history of unproductive efforts.
