Blanche Stetler, Director of PrimeTime Centers of NJ

Blanche Stetler, Director of PrimeTime Center

Blanche is the parent of a young man with disabilities. Her background includes working at The College of New Jersey for the Deaf-Blind project as a Parent Coordinator for children under 21 and their families. In that role she was able to advocate for families from New Jersey both at the local level through the Governor’s office as well as in Washington, visiting and lobbying our legislators on a Federal level.

Blanche Stetler has sat on the Governor’s Special Education Advisory board for eight years. Her focus on that committee was the transition into adult services for students finishing school.

Navigating the adult services world has been a priority for her as her son continues to access these services. During that process, she has gained valuable information that she enjoys sharing with other families in the hopes of making the process less frightening and maybe even a little easier. Knowing that State policies and procedures are constantly changing, she tries to keep up with the latest updates and pass along that knowledge to Primetime families. She is always accessible by phone and by email.

Blanche is always available to families as new challenges and concerns arise. Things change constantly within the state and keeping families updated on those changes is critical.

Take a few minutes and watch a special video outlining the essential steps and planning once your loved one reaches age 21. Here you will get to meet our Director of PrimeTime Center, along with an overview of the process, in addition to one of the support coordinators that we work closely with.
