Communication Skills & Assertiveness

Two workshops back to back:

Communication Skills – Communicating effectively with professionals that provide services to your child is key to obtaining and maintaining services. Workshop participants will learn the three components of communication, verbal, nonverbal and paraverbal, in order to communicate more effectively with others. We will also explore how to effectively receive messages from others and discuss the barriers to effective communication.

Assertiveness – This workshop is designed to teach parents to communicate opinions, thoughts, needs and feelings in a direct, honest, and appropriate manner, in order to secure a free appropriate public education for their children.


Childcare is provided but must RSVP to Debbie Grace 972-490-9055 x 1409 debbie.grace@thewarrencenter.org no later than the Wednesday prior to the workshop, so that they can plan to have enough childcare providers.

Avoiding the Disability Divorce

It’s important for parents to understand that parents of a child with a disability face more challenges in maintaining healthy relationships than parents of families without a child with a disability. We will discuss some of the ways these relationships vary from other families, how to address some of these unique challenges, and some tactics for maintaining and strengthening relationships, both with your partner and within your family, so we can help provide parents a helping hand in avoiding the disability divorce.
