Parent and Educator Engagement Program


Time Frame: 1 1/2 hour

What it is and What it Does

How often have you said,

  • I just don’t understand my child
  • I can’t seem to motivate this student. I wish he’d take some initiative.
  • I want to encourage him to recognize and work in his strengths but I can’t seem to connect.

Calming Strategies for Coping with Uncertain Times

Time Frame 1 1/2 hours

What it is and What it Does

I’m guessing that 2020 hasn’t turned out quite like you planned. 

Times have changed in ways that no one expected. No one anticipated a pandemic that would close schools and relocate businesses to working from home. Everyone has experienced loss and frustration. Anxiety and depression are at an all-time high. How do you maintain calm in such an uncertain world? How do you parent children who don’t understand the changes?

Here’s What Participants Will Learn

  1. Strategies develop routine and meet children’s developmental needs
  2. Strategies for anxiety and other negative emotions
  3. A script to develop a unique family mission statement 
  4. Strategies for improved family communication 


  • Increased understanding of a child’s strengths and development areas
  • Improved interpersonal communication
  • Enhanced focus on family core values and priorities
