About This Workshop

Supporting your child with special needs can feel confusing, overwhelming and sometimes impossible. While your child needs people who understand and support them, so do you.

This workshop will connect you with Peace At Home teachers and other parents like yourself who understand your day-to-day experiences and the worries that can come along with those. Join us to gain skills to navigate the complex terrain of raising a child with special needs and addressing challenging behaviors.  We will also talk about accessing special education to appropriately meet your child’s needs.
