Dec. 23, 2016 -- Reaching Heights and the Exceptional Children's Advocacy Group will present a workshop series for families to help their children with special needs become strong self-advocates.
Workshop One: Preparing Children to be Safe in Their Community will take place on Tuesday, January 31, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Coventry Building.
Parents can learn alongside their children in this interactive session. Hear from community agents including police officers, a social worker, representatives from the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities and more.
The group will explore questions such as:
- Who can I turn to in my community if I feel unsafe?
- What is safe internet behavior?
- What should my family do if my child's behavior becomes unsafe?
- What do first responders look and sound like when they are responding to a crisis?
- How can I help build my child's confidence in public settings?
A light dinner will be provided.
Future workshops include:
