All about the apps on Facebook Live

Jeanne Petit will present this interactive workshop: No matter which hurdles your child faces, apps and other media included in this presentation can give him or her an added boost. We don’t expect an app to be a complete solution, of course. Working with students who face challenges requires lots of time, attention, and patience on the part of a parent, teacher, or other adult caregivers. Our goal is to offer you a host of fun apps you can add to your toolkit as you work with your child.

Supporting Youth: Navigating to Adult Healthcare

This webinar is for Youth and their Parents/Caregivers to learn about transitioning from pediatric to adult healthcare!
There are significant differences between adult and pediatric health care models. Pediatric care is family oriented and relies on parent involvement in decision making; adult care is guided by the patient and requires independent skills of the patients. Healthcare transition is important for all youth, and it’s important to be prepared.

Workshop summary

Students who have self-determination skills have a stronger chance of being successful by addressing the need for self-determination skills among adolescents, including some of the major components of self-determination, which are: knowledge of self and others, personal management, effective communication, self-advocacy, and Advocacy within systems, decision-making, goal setting & problem-solving.

Parenting a Child with Mental Health Needs: Systems to Engage Your Child and Family

A System of Care Is Not a Specific Type of Program

Toma de decisiones apoyada. Toma de decisiones sustituida

Los invitamos a que se unan con la entrenadora de padrs Josefina Gonzalez por FBLive en Español.  Imagínese tener su capacidad para tomar decisiones, firmar contratos, votar, defender sus derechos en los tribunales o elegir que le quiten tratamientos médicos simplemente porque tiene una discapacidad. Para muchas personas con discapacidad, esto es una realidad y las consecuencias pueden ser graves. Cuando las personas carecen de la capacidad jurídica para actuar, no solo se les priva de su derecho a un reconocimiento igual ante la ley, sino que también se les priva de su capacidad para defender y disfrutar de otros derechos humanos. Los tutores y tutores que actúan en nombre de las personas con discapacidad a veces no actúan en beneficio de la persona a la que representan; peor, a veces abusan de sus posiciones de autoridad, violar los derechos de los demás.
