The “Positive Parenting Program” is an effective, positive and practical approach tailored to the needs of parents of a child with a disability.
Self-care refers to the things we do to take care of our physical selves. Teaching children self-care skills can start at a young age. Parents of children who have a disability may need to provide more time and effort to teach self-care skills to their child. Parents can start as early as possible to teach self-care skills and give their children the best opportunity to reach their potential towards independence.
This workshop provides parents with ideas on formal and informal approaches to teaching children self-care skills, and how to manage misbehaviour if it occurs during these times.
