Hosted by BC Hands & Voices and Guide By Your Side
Presented by: Angela Clancy, Executive Director of the Family Support Institute
Meeting the needs of everyone in the family can be a challenge – especiallywhen one or more of the children are deaf or hard of hearing. This interactive workshop will focus on identifying common issues that arise with siblings, as well as strategies, ideas, and resources to help deal with them. Topics will include:
- The needs of all children
- Sibling relationships
- Parenting strategies (active listening and overall effective communication)
- Dealing with conflict
- The benefits of growing up with a brother or sister who is deaf or hard of hearing
There will also be time throughout the day for families to socialize and share information with one another informally.
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 from 10:00 am-3:00 pm.
