RSVP to join this upcoming event at: Back to School in 2021

Major disruptions occurred to many school-aged children in 2020-21 that resulted in unprecedented educational challenges, including children with special healthcare needs, their parents, caregivers, teachers, and service providers. In addition to instructional concerns, all involved needed to rapidly develop and enforce a virtual infrastructure that not only supplemented but substituted for quality in-person interactions and engagement.

In this session, helping professionals and parents/caregivers will have the opportunity to learn about:

  • Tips and strategies for effective virtual communication.
  • Key questions to ask and ways to pre-prepare answers related to special needs.
  • Guidance for preparing comprehensive presentations ahead of a virtual meeting.
  • Access to resources for ongoing technical assistance with a one-pager checklist for future reference.

Get prepared for this upcoming webinar by viewing part 1 of Back to School: Special Needs and Social Distancing. Continuing education credit is still available for providers.
