1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. | Frisco 8 ¢Dispatch - The Pulse of Special Needs Transportation Specialized Training Instructor: Maria Carocci This workshop will check the pulse of your operation’s dispatch to determine what is needed—life support or just a bandage? Being a transportation dispatcher can be a stressful job. However, it sets the stage for either organizational health or catastrophe. This interactive, four-hour workshop is built around the concept of the dispatcher as the pulse of your organization—the lifeblood of what you do. Dispatch controls information to and from the front-line staff who transport students with special needs. This interactive workshop will focus on time management and response to emergencies. It will also share how to improve communication using two-way radios and telephones, as well as via written and personal communications. Identify the specific challenges to communication when transporting students with special needs. Learn techniques to improve customer service and build positive relationships with your customers. Develop effective documentation, and establish and maintain positive staff morale. The case studies used in this workshop will allow the participants to practice what they have learned, network with other dispatch professionals, and walk away with real-world considerations and


techniques to improve the health of their organization through effective dispatch practices. (Pre-registration is required.)
