About this Event
FAMILY ADVOCACY: Being strong and resilient in difficult meetings and discussions with health, disability and other service providers
EDUCATION ADVOCACY: How to negotiate for your child with schools
If you go to meetings or appointments to stand up for your child, friend or relative with disability and feel intimidated, anxious, outnumbered, powerless or not heard by professionals, then there are some simple strategies you can use to achieve good outcomes.
If you would like to feel comfortable and confident going to meetings and know that you’re going to be heard and that there will be fair outcomes, then this session is for you!
We will explore the attitudes and strategies we need, to stand up for someone without getting worn down and frustrated ourselves.
