Starting Over: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren with Special Needs

December 7, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Please join Dianne O’Connor, Regional Coordinator for Parent to Parent of NYS as she presents a webinar on Starting Over, Grandparents (or Other Relatives) Raising Grandchildren with Special Needs.
There are many reasons why a grandparent, or relative, raising their grandchildren full time. By creating an enriched, supportive, and safe living environment, grandchildren stay connected to their family while keeping them out of foster care.
This webinar will address the advantages and disadvantages of caring for our own and give practical resources and strategies for providing the best for your grandchildren. As one of the most important members of the family, we will also look at ways to care for you along the way.
