Two Special Education Parent Workshops will be presented by Partners Resource Network-TEAM Project on Thursday, Jan. 9, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Victoria Public Library in the Bronte Room, 302 N. Main St, Victoria.

“Social Skills Development” will be presented from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Socialization is the process by which children and adults learn from others. In order to be successful at socialization, you must possess some self-determination skills. This workshop will define natural socialization, planned socialization, positive and negative socialization. We will discuss ways we can assist children with socialization by promoting self-determination, social skills and learning opportunities. Parents of children with disabilities must create opportunities for socialization and inclusion.

“Is Your Child a Target of Bullying?” will be presented from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. This workshop will provide participants with a practical understanding of what bullying is and the impact it can have on children with disabilities. We will learn about the different types of bullying, intervention strategies and the role that adults can play in the prevention of bullying.

Following the workshops, Individual Support Service is available for parents to discuss specific questions or concerns about their child’s special education services. Bring your ARD or IFSP paperwork. Call or email for an appointment time.

Attend one or both sessions. For more information, to reserve a seat for the workshop or make an appointment for the Support Service, contact Brenda Nelson at 979-616-0393 or
