At 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 13 in the Oak Room of the Sylvania Campus CC Building, parent trainer Victoria Haight of the Oregon Education Association will present a two-hour workshop. She will examine the role of parents and caregivers as advocates for their child with special needs. She will share important resources, discuss the environment of school systems, and the qualities of an effective advocate including negotiation techniques and how to get to “win-win” solutions when there is disagreement.
This workshop is sponsored by the PCC Sylvania Women’s Resource
Center (WRC), the Student Parent Network and the Early Education and Family Studies Department. For more information, call (503) 977-8101.
