Inclusive Education Project Podcast


Dec 18, 2018

2019 is almost here! We are so grateful for all of the amazing opportunities that came our way this year and all the families we were able to help.

As we look forward to the new year, we’re sharing our new year’s resolutions and 2019 goals with you. We’d love to hear yours! Share it with us in our private Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/ieppodcast 

Along with sharing our resolutions for the new year, we’re discussing how parents with children with special needs can make traveling for the holidays a little bit easier. For parents who have never traveled with their children before, it can be intimidating. But with a little bit of planning and some of the tips we share in this episode, you’ll be on your way to a fun-filled holiday travel season.

What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Vickie’s new year’s resolution to care for her new baby girl
  • Amanda’s new year’s resolution to finally get a dog!
  • How you can craft your very own new year’s resolution
  • What are some ways parents prepare their children ahead of time for upcoming travel?
  • How can you schedule special activity time with your child that is specifically designed for them?
  • Can you set up a reinforcement system in order to get your child to cooperate with you while traveling?
  • Do you have a system for addressing potential behavioral issues while on the road?
  • How can you best prepare your family members who are not familiar with your child’s behavior and reinforcement systems?
  • Is it a big deal if your child misses a few days of school because of travel?
  • The importance of giving your child’s school and teachers advance notice
  • Check your state’s truancy laws
