When you first began your journey in the world of being a parent of a child with special needs, did you ever wish you had someone to lean on who had at once been in your same shoes?
Did you feel overwhelmed with all of the information and experiences?
If you did happen to find someone who was able to lend you support, how beneficial was that person to you and your life?
Would you like to become a Supportive Parent where can share your experiences with other new parents of children with special needs.
Nothing compares with the empathetic support given by a parent who has “been there.”
Supportive Parents are volunteers who have a child with special needs and are willing to talk with other parents about their experienced.
If you are interested in helping other families by being a Support Parent, please join us for our next training!
Participants will learn how to share their story, communication skills, importance of confidentiality, community resources, effective telephone support, how to handle difficult situations and Much More!
Join us THIS SATURDAY, March 3 from 8:00 a.m. – noon at Partners In Learning.
A light brunch will be provided.
On-site childcare will be available for parents who request it.
Registration is Required! Please call 704-638-9020 to RSVP
