Basic Special Needs Training for Professionals: Understanding Early Start, Supporting Families and LD Simulation, Parents Helping Parents - Sobrato Center for Nonprofits, Saturday, 30. March 2019

Financed by FIRST 5 Santa Clara County.
Designated for FIRST 5 Partners and other local professionals such as home visitors, childcare and preschool providers, Family Resource Centers staff, and therapeutic service providers. Parents are also welcome.
The morning session will begin with a basic overview of Early Start and Special Education, the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), the transition process and the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). It provides a foundation in understanding the transition steps as well as the similarities and differences between early intervention and special education programs.
Participants will also discover insights, tools, and methods to collaborate with families that have a young child with a known or suspected disability; understand parental grief; make use of community resources and PHP services, and work with parents who may have their own disabilities. The focus is on fostering resiliency in these families and their young children.
The afternoon session features a Learning Disabilities Simulation, facilitated by Melissa King.
Experience firsthand through this learning disability simulation* different types of learning challenges faced on a daily basis by children/students with LD and/or ADHD challenges.
You will emerge more sensitive, empathetic and better able to advocate for the child, no matter what his/her particular disability may be. *We use Experience Dyslexia materials offered through the International Dyslexia Association
Parents are welcome to attend the LD Simulation session.
