Creating Authentic Partnerships: Parents and Professionals

When parents and professionals view one another as equal partners, a true partnership can develop through collaboration. Collaboration between Parent Leaders and EHDI professionals requires respect, trust, and a consistent, mindful effort to communicate. These are important elements of partnership in the co-production of services that are designed to meet the unique needs of families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing from the diverse and cultural populations in your state or territory. This webinar will discuss how Arizona EHDI has evolved, how parent partnerships are viewed, the level of parent leader involvement, and how parents have moved from a seat at the table to leading at the head of the table.
