Family Connections: Meaningful Engagement in the Special Education Process
Hosted by ARISE of Cayuga County
Session 2: Effective Communication Between Schools and Families: The Key to Success (NYSED Vetted)
This NYSED vetted training was developed to promote quality special education services for all students with disabilities. The modules contained within this training are intended to help Families and School Personnel to build their communication skills in their role as a CSE team member that is consistent with State laws and regulations.
The goals of this training are:
- Participants will understand both their role and the student’s role in the Special Education process
- Participants will understand the barriers that interfere with effective communication and strategies to overcome the barriers
- Participants will gain a basic understanding of the essential elements of effective communication
- Participants will learn about strategies and tools that will establish and maintain effective collaboration between families and schools
All parents, family members and guardians can and should have meaningful participation in their children’s education, especially when the child receives special education supports and services. Effectively communicating and collaborating with the school team is essential to improved outcomes for students with disabilities. ARISE of Cayuga County is pleased to host this three-part Family Connections Series presented by SUPAC-Syracuse University Parent Assistance Center. Each session will provide strategies and information to build upon the next in helping families to navigate and participate in the Special Education Process for their children!
