How to Talk with Your Child’s Team:Effective Communication During the PPT/504 Process

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Difficult conversations can be unpleasant, confrontational and provoking. A common fear is that an already challenging situation may get worse because of unresolved issues, conflict or loss of trust among interested parties. When it comes to PPT or 504 meetings with parents and school personnel, the stakes are often high: decisions made during these meetings can ultimately determine the educational services your child receives and the direction of his/her future path.

In this workshop, Todd Kellogg, LMFT, BCBA, a licensed behavior analyst and family therapist, will discuss the importance of effective communication skills; how you, as parents, can become more emotionally self-aware during difficult conversations; how to avoid falling “heart first” into conflict with school-based teams; and how to forge collaborative relationships with school personnel despite disagreements and competing priorities.

This event is free and open to the public. Register at the SPED*NET Wilton website: spednetwilton.org

Co-sponsored by Wilton Library, Wilton SEPTA and Wilton Public Schools
