It is so helpful to feel like you are saying what you mean, and that the people you are talking with have that same understanding. Learning what is stopping you from effectively communicating can open up new worlds of collaboration and opportunities to share your successes with others. This is especially helpful in meetings at school, with people who are providing your child’s services, and medical professionals, both now and in the future. Communication is key to effective partnerships. Gain positive outcomes, strengthen your advocacy skills and help develop the teamwork that will make your life easier.
