Brubeck Room

Event Details

Presented by SPED*NET, Todd Kellogg's presentation in the Brubeck Room will discuss how parents are busier than ever and the difficulty of raising kids has increased exponentially along with the challenges of just growing up in today’s world. For parents to be successful in guiding their children, setting common sense expectations, and enforcing boundaries, they need to find ways to work together and co-parent in a collaborative manner. Meeting the challenges of co-parenting is all the more critical when kids have special needs. As parents of kids with special needs know, everything is magnified in a sense and missteps can be that much more problematic for the child’s development.  In this discussion, Todd Kellogg will walk you through the best practices of co-parenting, successful communication patterns, and how to bounce back after setbacks.
