During the workshop you will learn how to:

– Develop your own strategy for more effective communication.

– Implement the Triple A Method – Attitude, Ask, Answer – for effective communication.

– Be a more effective listener and how to listen without judgement.

– Effectively ask a professional to explain words you don’t understand.

– Effectively phrase questions and receive answers to these questions.

– Develop  key questions to include in your communications strategy.

– Develop a better understanding of commonly misunderstood medical terms such as entitled vs. eligible, developmental delay, medical home and managed care.

The end goal of the workshop is for you to leave more confident in your communications skills and your ability to effectively discuss your child’s mental, behavioral and emotional health issues with the professionals and others who are involved in the care of your child.
