How Involved Parents Can Foster a Child’s Self-Advocacy Skills

TIME: Thursday, December 2 at 11 am MST.

EXPERT: Michael Nakkula, Ph.D.

Decades of research tell us that a parent’s close bond and engagement with their child leads to academic success. For children with learning differences, this engagement is also paramount to their social and emotional wellbeing — in large part because it unlocks self-advocacy skills.

Michael Nakkula, Ph.D., of the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, will share the impact of empowering student advocacy and harnessing parent engagement on social-emotional development, academic achievement, and overall mental health for students with learning differences.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How consistent parent/family engagement plays a critical role in students’ academic, social, and emotional learning
  • How to develop and build student voice, which has the power to identify a child’s struggles, joys, and possibilities — and to change the trajectory of his or her future
  • How engaging with your child outside of the classroom leads to increased chances of attending college, developing a career, and life preparedness
  • Practical ways parents can enhance a student’s voice and increase family engagement
