A DirectSTEP® eLearning course from LRP

Developed by Debbi Herrera

Parents must learn to accept the realities of a child’s disability. This process of acceptance can be lengthy and can impact classroom instruction. It is important for educators to be part of this process and to partner with parents to create high expectations for all students.

This course explores the varying levels of expectations parents may have for their children with disabilities so you can develop positive relationships with parents and work with them to serve children effectively. Along with insights into recognizing parent burnout, you gain coping strategies you can pass on to help parents manage stress plus practical guidance on helping parents fulfill their advocacy responsibilities in IEP meetings.
