DESCRIPTION OF WORKSHOP: South Carolina parents/caregivers, join us on this Support Parent Saturday for an interactive workshop that provides four hours of evidence-based training that will give you (a parent of a child with special health care needs) the skills to be able to support another parent effectively. The goal of the Support Parent Program is to help educate, inspire and empower parents and their children to live rich, fulfilling lives in spite of many challenges. As a representative of Family Connection, a Support Parent provides emotional support and information to families of individuals with disabilities or other special needs. Support Parents connect with other families, either by telephone or by email, and provide a safe listening environment that can be a wealth of information to other families. All attendees who complete the training will receive a certificate as well as additional opportunities for skill development and volunteer time during their year commitment to Family Connection of SC.
