Turtle Wing Offers Parent Training in Spanish for Families who Participate in Special Education

What is Parent Leadership Training and what is the role of a Parent Leader? Parent Leadership Training is a program specifically designed for parents of children with disabilities. It is based on research and a move towards facilitated Admission, Review and Withdrawal (ARD) meetings. Parent Leaders are trained by Partners Resource Network (PRN) to attend ARD meetings with other parents. Their role is to help parents prepare for the meeting, plan an agenda, identify problems, and support the collaborative meeting process. This also means helping parents and the school reach consensus when possible. Parent Leaders are not advocates, but partners in the ARD process. Parent Leaders are parents who have gone through an intensive, one-day Parent Leadership Training and are volunteers for PRN. This training will also benefit parents who simply want to know more for themselves so that they feel more prepared to participate in the ARD process as a team member who wants to be engaged in their child's education. The next training being offered by Turtle Wing Foundation and facilitated by PRN will be presented in Spanish. This training will be held on Saturday, August 28, 2021 at the Turtle Wing office campus (1203 S. Summit Ave., Schulenburg). This building is next to On Pointe Dance Studio and just south of the Schulenburg K.C. Hall. To register, parents should call Ana Esparza (832)720-2152 or e-mail her at region4bprn@gmail.com. Turtle Wing Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving Colorado, Fayette, Lavaca and surrounding counties. Turtle Wing provided Early Intervention and Supplemental Services to almost 300 children last year with thousands more being impacted by Community Education & Advocacy programming.
