If you have found yourself considering some of these questions, join our Parenting Strategies Program for parents of 5-12 year-olds. Children and Family Programs will assist parents in increasing their child’s academic potential.
Children participate in social skill groups while the parents work together to learn strategies to support academic success and behavior management techniques. Our goal is to help parents promote positive changes in their children’s home and school behavior.
