Family Connection of SC offers a wide variety of conferences, workshops and webinars to ensure parents and professionals have the knowledge needed to be the best advocate possible for the child. We have defined the types of trainings we offer to assist you in choosing the type that best suits your needs.

Conferences: A conference is a large formal meeting, often lasting a few days, which is organized, with groups of talks on a particular subject or to bring together people who have a common interest. Examples of conferences frequently held by Family Connection are our Annual Hopes and Dreams Conference and our Down Syndrome Conference.

Workshops: a brief intensive educational program or meeting where a group of people share their knowledge or experience and engage in intensive discussion and activity on a particular subject or project in a particular field. These are usually 1-2 hours long and are scheduled for one training day.

Live Trainings: Also known as webinars, these are live online educational presentation conducted over the internet, that are educational, informative, instructional presentation and interactive. This allows many participants in different locations to see and hear the presenter, watch powerpoint slides, and ask questions.

Recorded Trainings: These are Live Trainings that have been recorded and are available for playback at the users convenience.
