Event Description

Parent to Parent (P2P) will be holding a Mentor Training session on Saturday, April 21, from 10 to 12 at its offices in Silver Spring. P2P is a peer mentoring program for the parents of children with special needs. This training session is intended for potential new mentors and for existing mentors who would like a refresher. The session will focus on how to support families who are facing a new diagnosis or going through a challenging transition time. Specifically, we will discuss communication and listening skills, the grieving process, confidentiality and local resources.

Child care will be provided on-site by SNAP, the Special Needs Access Project, which provides recreational, educational, and social interaction engagement for children with special needs. http://specialneedsaccess.com/. We will be organizing several fun activities for the children, while parents are learning more about P2P and what is entailed in becoming a support parent. I would like to encourage all interested parents to attend the training session, even if you don't ultimately decide to participate as a mentor. This is a great way to meet other parents and share experiences.

The training session will be held at SEEC's offices:

8905 Fairview Road

Suite 300

Silver Spring MD 20910

Spanish translation will be provided upon request.

Please RSVP by April 13 with the number of parents and children who will be attending. Any questions? Please contact me using the information listed below.
