‘All Inclusive?’ – Supporting Families

November 14, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Supporting Families – understanding and supporting, practically and pastorally, families of children and young people with additional needs

This seminar looks at:

Understanding the terminology regarding additional/special needs, disability etc.

Navigating the diagnosis; what is the journey that many families are on?

Transitions, milestones, rites of passage; what are some of the key ‘trigger’ points for families?

Dads, siblings, challenges during lockdown and more…

What appropriate practical and pastoral support can be offered to families?

Further information, resources and support to explore.

The seminar provides you with everything you need to better understand some of the challenges families of children and young people with additional/special needs encounter, what that experience can be like for them, and how to offer and provide appropriate and informed support.

The ‘All Inclusive?’ – Supporting Families training programme includes:

– A comprehensive colour A4 training workbook with a wealth of information and resources sent to each participant in advance.

– Access to a series of videos to explore and learn through, covering a range of topics related to supporting families of children and young people with additional needs.

– Finally, a Zoom session including discussion groups, case studies, Q&A, and signposting to further resources to investigate, as we wrap this programme up together.

“This morning, I attended another AMAZING Zoom training session on ‘All Inclusive?’ – Supporting Families – by Mark Arnold (Additional Needs Ministry Director at Urban Saints). It was SO GOOD to meet virtually with other professionals passionate about making their work/ministry INCLUSIVE and ACCESSIBLE to all. It was CRUCIAL to take the time out to reflect on what we do at EDGE and think about how we include everybody. HIGHLY recommended training!”

“This morning’s training was OFF THE CHARTS!! I recommend this training to EVERYBODY!”
