Advocacy Tools for Parents of Children with Special Needs

November 20, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

$130.00

[:en]Convincing decision-makers that a child with special needs has special challenges requiring individualized accommodation can be very challenging for parents – especially since they are often still grappling with their child’s diagnosis and understanding systems of service delivery. This day will help families better understand how to effectively and positively advocate for their children – regardless of their child’s specific special need. Most examples will be drawn from the B.C. education system; however, basic advocacy strategies relevant in other systems will be addressed in order to empower parents to gain confidence by understanding their roles, rights and responsibilities.

Regular Rate ends November 12th, 2015 $85 $100
Late Rate begins November 13th, 2015 $115 $130[:fr]Convincing decision-makers that a child with special needs has special challenges requiring individualized accommodation can be very challenging for parents – especially since they are often still grappling with their child’s diagnosis and understanding systems of service delivery.
