Parent Leadership Institute
Close your eyes and picture an educational leader. There’s a good chance the image in your mind will be that of a teacher, a school administrator or possibly a public policy maker. Yet the nearest educational leader may be closer than you think: it’s you!
“Life-changing” is how parents describe the experience of attending SSD’s Parent Leadership Institute. Since 2006, the Institute has been committed to providing information, training, and resources to local parents of children who have disabilities. It is presented by the SSD Parent Education and Diversity Awareness Program.
During several sessions, parents work to develop a vision for their children’s future and, more importantly, the confidence to make it happen. Graduates of the Institute walk away with knowledge about how to effectively participate in their child’s education as well as the leadership skills they need to improve the educational climate for all children.
