We are writing to share that we feel there is no safer option than to reimagine this year’s Uncork Hope event, scheduled for November 5, 2021. After hosting a virtual event last year, we were anticipating a joyous return to our traditional in-person (and indoor) event, but feel that concerns about COVID-19 still linger. Our mission is to provide hope and support to families of children with special healthcare needs. Hosting an inside event for a large crowd, given the hardships that continue to surround our community, especially where children are concerned, would go against that mission.
We hope you are staying safe and well! We know that the pandemic has continued to complicate so many parts of our everyday lives but we want you to know we are thinking about you!
PEATC, in collaboration with Virginia Institute of Autism, presents this informative workshop.
About this event
PEATC, in collaboration with Virginia Institute of Autism, invite you to join us for Understanding the Dynamics of Cyberbullying Technology and our Youth.
The use of technology has increased instances of cyberbullying. Individuals with disabilities are at a greater risk of being cyberbullied and cyberbullying has raised new challenges for students, parents, school administrators, and law enforcement. During this interactive workshop, we will define what cyberbullying is, explore the types of cyberbullying, the motivations behind cyberbullying and the warning signs to look out for. We will also learn tips and strategies to protect vulnerable individuals from being cyberbullied.
And don’t forget – ASCV Members get a discounted rate just for being a member, AND our ASCV Professional Members receive a complimentary registration as a perk of their annual membership. Not a member yet, but interested in joining us? You can join HERE.
This past Monday, we were in court. I happen to love court rooms and law, but usually from a TV screen or a novel. It is so different when you are participating in one.
I have not been in many court rooms, and luckily for me, the few times I have, I have always been on the right side of the law. BUT, even so, being in a court room makes me feel uneasy.
Dear KNOWDifferent Families,
Re Entry is a thing and it is hard.
No matter what it is.
It could be going back to school, work, maybe social gatherings.
Re entry could be relearning and getting acquainted with things that you were missing in your life the last 18 months.
