Join the ASCV on Wednesday, March 4th for our monthly workshop, How to Talk so Schools will Listen and Listen so Schools Will Talk presented by Keri Peko of PEATC at River Road United Methodist Church at 6:30pm.
Why are partnerships so difficult? What can be done to improve understanding between parents and professionals as they seek to find mutual agreement on IEPs and other issues related to education for students with disabilities? This workshop will help participants discover communication techniques, learn how to recognize and prevent barriers to communication and build agreements around difficult problems.
