On April 2, 2015 CADRE hosted a webinar, Trusting Family-Professional Partnerships: Preventing, Resolving, and Moving Beyond Disputes
Dr. Ann Turnbull
The PowerPoint and other handouts for the webinar are available for download below.
About the Webinar: Ann Turnbull will reflect on her four decades as a parent of a son with multiple disabilities and a special education faculty member in terms of preventing disputes, if at all possible, and resolving and moving beyond disputes, when necessary to do so. She will use her own family experiences in providing examples at the early childhood, elementary, secondary, transition to adulthood, and adulthood lifespan stages to share "lessons learned" primarily, but not exclusively, related to school, employment, and community inclusion. She will emphasize the power and synergy of reciprocal trusting partnerships that truly do withstand the test of time and produce quality of life for people with disabilities and their families.
About the Presenter: Dr. Ann Turnbull has been a professor, researcher, and advocate for individuals with disabilities, their families, and service providers for four decades. She has authored 32 books and over 250 articles and chapters. In 1999, she was selected as one of 36 individuals who have "changed the course of history for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the 20th century." Her greatest learning has come from her son, Jay Turnbull, who she has always called her "best professor" about the needs of individuals with significant disabilities over the lifespan.
