Do you struggle to feel heard, to get your point across or to untangle the multitude of issues you may have in order to prioritise them?
During this workshop you will:
• Learn skills that will be of value to develop in order to effectively support your child in school, at home and in the community • Gain insight into your own strengths and realise your limitations. • Understand the concept of self-advocacy and how it can work for you. • Be able to prioritise issues and prepare for meetings or telephone conversations so that you feel in control and less overwhelmed. • Learn how to set realistic outcomes
The ability to understand and communicate your needs and wants to others is a skill all people need. Those who are skilled at self-advocacy are more likely to have a sense of control over their lives and feel more confident and competent. This sense of confidence and competence inspires people to a greater level of self-determination.
