Barb Drummond, parent to Clark and our presenter for the See Me Beautiful Conference, will be doing a session for PARENTS ONLY on introducing your child to his/her school, educators and peers. Read more below!
Be Proactive – Not Reactive!
Barb will present strategies to help you introduce and deliver information about your child to his/her peers and other school personnel. New school? New class? New staff working with your child? Whether your school is familiar with your child or not – this session allows you to return to your child’s school and share information on Down syndrome and more specifically, about YOUR child!
In this presentation attendees will discover the power of being proactive when introducing their child with Down syndrome to his/her class and support team. Allowing the other students to discover your child’s abilities through PowerPoint presentation and hands on activity helps ensure that the class and school personnel will be more open and accepting of who this new child is. On the day your child enters – others will have a better understanding of what to expect and how to succeed with your child.
From Barb’s own experience, Ability Awareness is a valuable tool for educating peers and school staff alike, and it inspires more acceptance, compassion and understanding. Teachers, Educational Assistants and the whole school team will discover your child’s strengths and challenges, acquire knowledge about how having Down syndrome influences learning, and be provided with tips and tricks on how to deal with their unique learning style and behavior.
