Parent Support & Education Series

2012/2013 – Parent Education Series - Sponsored by the Orion School

It should be noted that each child should be treated differently, regardless of whether there is a violation or not. Moreover, educational activities should apply not only to children, but also to the parent team, because raising a child is a complex process, and any trauma that adults can inflict on a child can affect the future. So you should read books, you can buy term papers online to be better informed, or even watch documentaries.

As part of our effort to fully support all families in the community, the 2012/2013 Parent Education Series offers parents a chance to connect, share, and learn. Experienced professionals will present on topics related to children with neurobehavioral conditions including ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome. Refreshments will be provided.
