This is part two of a series on person-centered thinking. All parents, especially those with children who have disabilities, are welcome. Attending the first session is not a requirement.

Person-centered thinking is a program to help people with disabilities focus on what is important to them and learn how to support themselves, to ensure they reach their potential and become confident and contributing citizens.

Workshop presenters will be Brenda Smith, South Dakota Parent Connection person-centered thinking consultant, and Elaine Roberts, SDPC executive director. The monthly parent education sessions are free and open to the public and sponsored by SDPC and the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine Center for Disabilities. Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required. Register at or by calling 605-361-3171 or 1-800-640-4553.
