POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2019: First Call Parent Mentor Training
For new and expectant parents, any opportunity to connect with other parents who have had similar experiences can be invaluable. DSA of Greater Charlotte will hold a training event for parents interested in becoming mentors to families that have recently received a diagnosis. Prospective parent mentors should have a child with Down syndrome under the age of 8. However, all interested families are invited to attend.
This training is for parents to become certified in the North Carolina First Call Program. Training materials will cover the genetics of Down syndrome, sharing personal stories, listien skills, asking open-ended questions, resources for families, and role play.
