Parent Advocacy Groups Modesto CA
Therapeutic Playground is proud to offer parent advocacy groups in Modesto CA for parents of children with disabilities and unique social and behavioral challenges. One of the first major steps toward advocating for your child with special needs is education, and that’s something we love to provide for our clients. At our facility, we have a large training room where we will be offering training sessions based around topics such as navigating the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process, advocating for your child, and the role of nutrition in health and wellbeing.
Advocating for Children with Special Needs
Being an effective advocate for your child is a multi-step process, and it helps so much to have parents, teachers, and therapists on your side. First and foremost, making connections with allies and other parents in a similar situation gives you the community you need to move forward. Parent advocacy groups that meet in Modesto are an excellent place to start. Creating these communities is something we’re focusing on here at Therapeutic Playground because we want to give parents and guardians all the tools they need for their child’s current and future success. Once you’ve found your community, advocating for your child with special needs becomes about learning about your child’s unique needs and communicating those needs effectively to teachers and caretakers. If necessary, many parents find it helpful to have their child assessed by our staff for inclusion in one of our many therapy services, such as sensory motor gym time, behavioral and social support, Balance/Auditory/Vision exercises, and occupational therapy.
Parents are invited to sign up for our email newsletter and Facebook page to receive updates about our training classes as we move forward. Outside groups are also welcome to rent out our space for their own parent advocacy groups in the Modesto area.
