IPUL's E-News: October 18, 2019
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not all everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
We Want Your News and Events!
  If you have news, information or upcoming events in your hometown that are relevant to families who have children with disabilities or special health care needs and would like us to share that information, please email the details to parents@ipulidaho.org for review.

Our program coordinator will then share this via IPUL's social media networks. We are also happy to add events to our calendar for people to find.

flyer for the event - four emoticons across the top of the image with one sad one happy one mad and one glum
Disagreements happen. But conflict is not  always  a bad thing - it can be constructive. Having a plan to work through it can provide opportunities for everyone to be heard and understood, and improve strained interactions. This training will look at using the least adversarial approach to manage disagreements over how best to help your child, improving relationships for the long term.
