    Understanding and Engaging Families of Children with Special Needs

    Understanding and Engaging Families of Children with Special Needs Presenter(s): Evelyn Green Date(s): February 1, 2019 Location: CPS Garfield Park Office 2651 W. Washington Blvd, Chicago IL 60612 Check-In: 8:30 AM About This Workshop: Workshop: 9:00 AM-3:00 PM Contact Hours: 5 Parents and caregivers of young children are often assumed to be in denial and unaccepting when those children are diagnosed with a disability or referred for evaluation. As educators, we are often unsure of the best way to approach these families and caregivers, especially when it seems as if they are being resistant to our attempts to provide the best services and supports for their child (ren). This workshop will provide an overview of some of the factors that contribute to what we may perceive as a negative attitude, including cultural and emotional factors, prior experiences/history with the system and parents’ age. Participants will gain an understanding of the stages of emotional resolution experienced by parents when a child is diagnosed with a disability; cultural factors that may influence a families’ acceptance of a diagnosis; as well as strategies for working with parents who are apparently experiencing difficulty accepting their child’s disability or possible challenges.
