This workshop will explore the essential roles of the parent and service provider. Parent involvement and competence is a key component of success for children with developmental exceptionalities. A parent’s relationship with the community professional can make all the difference in terms of their level of empowerment. The workshop explores practical ways of moving practitioners towards services that are more closely aligned with enabling empowering families. It includes ideas on making the connection and building the relationship with the family.
