Training Opportunities for Parents

n many places we are back to in person instruction, but unfortunately there are many who still are having to educate remotely. This is a challenge under normal circumstances, but when we are dealing with a child with disabilities it becomes far more difficult. It is important that parents have a way to develop skills and strategies to work better with their child. I’ve created this list of online disabilities training sites that we could suggest to parents if they are looking.
