About the Workshop: We playfully call this training a "orientation" because we want to acknowledge that for some parents, facing the task of planningfor their child's future can be overwhelming.

Many people have no idea where to begin, some have been avoiding it for years, and most have inaccurate ideas about what's involved. Some parents are scared. Some parents say they wish they had a leader or guide, or a "road map" to help them begin their journey.

Our 3-hour Parent Orientation provides essential basic training to all parents who need to know how to begin and what their journey will look like. It will encourage some people to share their struggles with other parents, helping to unite all participants in our common experience. It will help many parents find courage and focus. Lastly, it will help all parents to learn how to take charge of their family's future!

The goals of orientation are to:

  • Introduce philosophy of Person Centred Planning and the PATH planning tool;
  • Identify the steps to Transition Planning;
  • Identify the roles and responsibilities of team members;
  • Learn about how to use the Teen Transition Planning Guide;
  • Acknowledge some of the emotional barriers and struggles parents face; and
  • Provide parents with an opportunity to link with other parents who are beginning this journey.
