Parent to Parent NZ presents: Education, Disability & Your Child Workshop

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Education, Disability & Your Child Workshop

Do you have a disabled child or child with a health impairment at school? Learn how to get the best outcomes for your child with an Individualised Education Plan (IEP).

As a parent or caregiver of a student with learning support needs you have an important role to play in your child’s education. A partnership between you, the school and other professionals will enable your child to progress at their own pace towards customised goals, and to make the most out of their time at school.

This informative [online] workshop will lead you through the IEP process, how to have productive IEP meetings, how to foster inclusion in the classroom, and the types of funding available to you. Don’t miss this chance to ensure your child reaches their full potential at school.

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Support Parent Training

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Support Parent Training

Do you have a disabled child? Are you a good listener? Do you want to help parents new to the world of disability?

When parents or caregivers first learn that their child has a disability or health impairment, it can feel like the world has turned upside down. It’s not an easy journey, but being able to talk to someone who has been there, and has walked a few miles further down the road can be a huge help.

At Parent to Parent we have an incredible team of volunteer parents and caregivers who provide this support to families and whānau across New Zealand. If you would like to join the team, we would love to see you at our next Support Parent training. Learn about active listening, interpersonal communication and how best to assist parents or caregivers new to the world of disability.

At the end of the training you can decide the level of support you are able to offer. Register today to reserve your spot! Many thanks to The Healthcare Otago Community Trust for supporting this event.
