Wrightslaw From Emotions to Advocacy Conference

April 6, 2017

In From Emotions to Advocacy training programs (one day, 6 hours), advocate Pat Howey teaches you how to take an active role in managing your child’s special education, the gentle art of disagreeing, and how to maintain healthy working relationships with the school.

You will learn: 

  • how to assess your child’s strengths and needs 
  • how to prepare a Parent Report for the IEP team
  • how to build healthy working relationships with school personnel 
  • how to document information that may prevent or resolve disputes 
  • how to participate as an equal member of your child’s IEP team 

Wrightslaw programs are designed to meet the needs of parents, educators, health care providers, advocates and attorneys who represent children with disabilities regarding special education. The program is not disability specific.
