"Man Laws for Moms: Understanding Dads"
This workshop explores reasons why dads do the things that they
do related to family involvement. The session looks at why dads
sometimes seem to disengage from emotional or stressful family
situations. Then the session will look at strategies that can be
used to help encourage dad to be more involved with a child with
special needs and the additional responsibilities that often
surround raising the child.
"Letting Go: Time to Land the Helicopter"
The Letting Go workshop examines the importance of encouraging
independence in a child with special needs and parents’
perspectives on this issue. The workshop also discusses how hard
it can be for parents to step back and offer increasing levels
of freedom to the child to allow the child to develop that
independence. Finally, the training offers some ideas for
parents in learning how to let go in a constructive fashion.
