This workshop by Potential Plus UK Senior Assessor, Andrea Anguera will give parents the tools they need to support DME children at home. We will look at the most common issues parents encounter with DME children and how best to prevent and manage them. Parents will consider parenting DME children with a strength-based and developing independence approach, then learn how to use this in meeting the basic and sensory needs as well as the more specific issues of executive functioning and emotional regulation, among others.
