Caregivers are most influential in a child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. The complexity of parenting a child with disability, high levels of stress, and overwhelming content in the related disability field implies a traditional approach to parent education and empowerment will not be effective and must change. Good outcomes in language and social skills necessitates caregivers have good self perception, better psychological health, and high family function. These constructs are incorporated into Essential Programs to Coach and Empower.
Partners for A Greater Voice has developed training and education seminars that focus on essential topics in hearing health and aural habilitation, which address well being and positive outcomes for both parent and child. Professionals working with families of children who are deaf and hard of hearing can enrich their practice by infusing PGV’s coaching strategies and meaningful discussion into their style of parent intervention. Full or half day seminars are available for professionals and practitioners. We also collaborate with your clinic, organization, or institution to organize engaging and interactive workshops and seminars for parents. Call to discuss your options.
