Taking the Next Steps: Sharing Family Tips on Strengths and Resiliency

The last few years have been a time of great duress for every individual – be a child or a family – impacted by a worldwide pandemic, difficult economic times, fraught political climate. Many of these factors have caused anxiety and stress directly impacting health, relationships, learning process, and overall well-being. While we may not have control on these huge outside forces, we can facilitate strategies to remain on a path of safety and health. For AP/OD facilitators, the session will provide a road map of practical strategies as we move forward in positive and individual ways.

We are Family: The Individuality of Families with Special Needs Children

As part of our AP/OD community of learners, families with Special Needs children are integral in our understanding of intentional development and the potential in learning opportunities. The session is also an opportunity for each of us to learn and understand how families are on a path of acceptance, understanding and participation as their child continues to growth and develop. During these early years of childhood, families and children involved in the AP/OD process can further gain a sense of strength and fortitude. They are part of the AP/OD community of support and care.   As AP/OD facilitators, you are key in creating that web of support.
