Growing Systems of Parenting Success
Kamakshi Memorial Hospital (KMH) organized a workshop for parents of children with autism and related disabilities on February 1, 2020.
The workshop was not just an isolated event! We have set in motion a process for parents to grow their systems of success together that we can continue to build in the future!
The workshop would not have happened but for the extensive work done by the Child Development Center (CDC) staff and KMH administrative team! I see the impacts in terms of adding resources and growing our Six Cs:
We developed a workbook and created other resources that will support future efforts.
Connections: By organizing this workshop, we have started growing connections within the KMH Workshop Team, and with the parent community. These connections will be the foundation for future workshops, and will enhance the work of the CDC in the future.
Conversations: The workshop initiated conversations on co-regulation, Bharatanatyam for children with autism
Clarity: Goals and activities for future workshop. For example, presenters at the first workshop included parents, professionals, and others. We can continue our efforts to encourage parents to become engaged in the workshop process in different ways
Choice: The workshop team and management team made numerous decisions throughout the implementation of this workshop. These choices will facilitate decision-making for future workshops.
Coordination: We evolved a workflow for implementing workshops that we can continue to use for future workshops
Capacity: Enhanced capacity to organize future workshops
The Six Cs and other elements of the Growing Systems of Success model are based on The PhD Project model. Additional details of this book are available here.
