The Grandparent Connection was created seeing after seeing a need in the community for support for grandparents. When parents receive a diagnosis for their child, they aren’t given a manual, neither do grandparents. Grandparents must learn to navigate how to communicate with their children and how to connect with their grandchild. They must learn about their grandchild’s disability and find ways to support their child without overstepping.
During this course, grandparent’s will have the opportunity to:
Express their emotions about their grandchild’s disability
See disability in a different light
Find new ways to communicate with their child
Find ways they can engage and interact with their grandchild
Community members served:
Grandparents who are not directly raising a child with a disability, please check our Kinship Care course if you are a Kinship family.
This course is for grandparents who are in their traditional grandparent role looking for ways to communicate better with their child and connect better with their grandchild.
