Parent Education Workshop Series Open to All DSCC Families
DSCC partners with IL LEND to offer an online space for parents to learn about important topics, gain resources and discuss strategies
A new webinar series provides an online space for parents and caregivers to access educational workshops, learn about resources and discuss strategies and support needs.
The series is open to all parents and caregivers of children enrolled with the University of Illinois Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC).
It’s the result of a partnership between DSCC and UIC’s Leadership and Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities Program (IL LEND).
There is no cost for families to participate.
Please note this workshop series now has a parent education focus rather than a traditional support group.
The virtual workshops will take place via Zoom on the third Wednesday of the month through April.
