Teacher: Stephanie O. Hubach
Quarantine presents special challenges and discouraging realities to both caregivers and adults with intellectual disability (ID). Perhaps you have pondered: do I really have the energy needed to craft a new plan for living during—and after—this time?
As we are homebound for the foreseeable future, pressing questions for caregivers mount:
- Will my adult with ID have a job when things do open up again?
- How can I creatively address the social isolation?
- How can we find a new purpose in the midst of so many changes?
- How can I help my family become all that God has created us to be?
- Where can I find wind for the second half of the race?
Join us for this online training that dives into today’s realities while offering creative, positive supports and strategies for making new plans in the midst of uncertainty. Steph will challenge us to evaluate and problem-solve common ruts and routines. We will also address:
- Overcoming the current challenges in helping our adults with ID become all that God has created them to be
- Creatively troubleshooting the loss of parental energy and motivation resulting from advocating over a long period of time
- Creative ideas for helping your adult son or daughter reach their goals
- Steps to form collaborative partnerships with others for realizing these goals
