Communicating with parents can be stressful and fraught with opportunities for misunderstanding. Very often ministry leaders complain that parents of children and teens with special needs are hesitant to open up about their child's diagnosis. This is most likely because of prior experiences that taught them to carefully guard information. But still the ministry leader is faced with exactly how to extract information from caregivers and parents. Katie Wetherbee, from Hope for Learning, writes eloquently and passionately about communication with parents on her blog Diving for Pearls. Listen in as Katie gives us tips and tools for communication that builds trust. August 26, 2014 12:00 p.m. EDT Join us for another live discussion about how to include and integrate kids with special needs at your church!
