Event Details

The start of a new school year can often bring excitement with a little nervousness as well, for both kids and parents! If your child struggles with attention, learning, behaviors, or social skills, it can be even harder.

Please join us for a FREE interactive presentation that will help you and your child get off to the right start this year! We will focus on the following topics, but welcome feedback and additional ideas that have been successful and questions not covered in the presentation.

  • Introducing (or re-introducing) your child to school
