Do any of you know of parents struggling to obtain the support they need for their children in the school system?

I am developing an advocacy awareness and basic skills package for such families and their schools to aid more effective communication.

Advocacy is all about speaking up for your, or someone else’s, rights. Learning basic advocacy skills together with key effective communication skills can go a long way to helping present your needs without so much of the heated emotion that can sometimes get in the way.

If you are interested or know of anyone you think this would be useful for – please get in touch with me at dorothy@findperspectives.co.uk and mention “Advocacy Workshops” in your email title.

If you know a local school where this would be helpful do please pass on my details to the relevant member of staff or Parents’ Association member and offer that they could email me for more information.

Thank you – and here’s to clear, effective communication to support getting our families’ needs met

Egan developed his model many years ago yet it remains as relevant
