How to Advocate for Kids with Special Needs

February 2020, Nanaimo

In this session I will share advice on how best to advocate for your child, talk about the difference between advocating and bullying (there is a line), and how to help your child find their own voice. I provide tips as a mother of a child with special needs, as well as insights from parents, healthcare professionals and educators I interviewed for my book – Your Child’s Voice, A Caregiver’s Guide to Advocating for Kids with Special Needs, Disabilities or Others Who May Fall through the Cracks.
