The Parents of the Panhandle Information Network and the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program are hosting a continuing education training of interest to volunteer guardians ad litem, staff and parents.

Join us on Monday, October 26, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at our offices on Thomasville Road for Individual Family Service Plans and Caring for the Caretaker.

The early years of a child's life are very important. During the infant and toddler years, children grow quickly and have so much to learn. Some children and families face special challenges and need extra help. Early help does make a difference! The Early Intervention Program is a statewide program that provides many different types of early intervention services to infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families.

Early intervention services can help you and your family learn the best ways to care for your child; support and promote your child's development; and include your child in your family and community life.

At the same time and while rewarding, caring for a loved one with disabilities can involve many stressors including changes in the family dynamic, household disruption, financial pressure and the added workload. This workshop will share strategies to help prevent caregiver burnout.

The training will be presented by Kathy Powell, Program Director of the Parents of the Panhandle Information Network, a program of the Family Network on Disabilities.

Participants may receive two (2) hours of continuing education credit. Afterward, report your hours quickly and easily using our eForm.

The training is free. You can download the event flyer and register with the event contact below.
