Bridging the Language Gap: Communicating with Families
What is the language gap? There is often a big gap between how & what we communicate with families, and how and what they hear. Join Martha to learn how to reach out to groups of parents who are struggling to cope with challenges in their lives, whether it be with their children’s behaviour, living in poverty, functioning with low literacy skills, being a new Canadian, or just busy family life. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the core issues facing families today, strategies for handling difficult conversations, and a simple checklist that can be used when creating all written communication.
