Fathers of Children with Disabilities: ODD Man Out LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Although many early childhood programs recognize the importance of father involvement and its potential to positively shape young children, especially children with disabilities, fathers and father figures continue to be 'left out' of conversations and activities pertaining to their children. In this session, participants will discuss the barriers that often inhibit father involvement and will brainstorm ways to break down those barriers. Participants will have the chance to view their own practices through the lens of the Head Start Birth to Five Father Engagement Guide,  highlighting successful examples of the guide in practice.
