Lucille Packard Foundation's Webinar A New Approach to Accessing Family Engagement in Health Care Systems will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. The webinar will explore four domains of family engagement, share models of success and discuss common barriers to incorporating meaningful family engagement in systems-level initiatives. 

   

Health care providers, payers, and systems serving children, youth and families increasingly focus on family engagement as a strategy to improve health care delivery, enhance consumer and provider satisfaction, and reduce costs. Assessing how well an organization or agency is engaging families is a critical step in achieving these goals. A recent issue brief from Family Voices, “A Framework for Assessing Family Engagement in Systems Change,” proposes four domains of family engagement – representation, transparency, impact and commitment. Join us as we explore this framework, share models of success and discuss common barriers to incorporating meaningful family engagement in systems-level initiatives. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.

   

It is suggested that attendees read the issue brief prior to the event. The brief can be accessed at lpfch.org/publication/framework-assessing-family-engagement-systems-change.

Participants in this webinar will learn what the research says, what issues to consider, the importance of transitioning healthcare and some effective means to begin a plan to transition for yourself or for your child. The focus is being a good parent partner with your health professionals and using some tools to begin the conversations and plan for and insure success.

Please join Tina Beauparlant, Regional Program Manager / Education Specialist for Parent to Parent of NYS, as she presents the webinar Let’s Take a Crash Course on Understanding how to Read an IEP. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a federal law, requires certain information to be included in the IEP but doesn’t specify how the IEP should look. Because states and local school systems may include additional information, forms differ from state to state and may vary between school systems within a state. The IEP, Individualized Education Program, is a written document that’s developed for each public school child who is eligible for special education. The IEP is created through a team effort and reviewed at least once a year. This training will teach you how to read the IEP so you can understand what should and can be in the IEP.

So what can adults do to support children with challenging behaviors and hopefully prevent or decrease behaviors in the future?

   

This two-part webinar will look at:

  • Factors that influence young children's behavior
  • What differentiates typical from challenging behavior
  • What adults can do to prevent challenging behaviors
  • Factors adults should consider in responding to challenging behaviors
  • Strategies to promote positive behaviors - at home and at school.
