Growing Up Issues
This class focuses on teaching how to approach issues such as what is safe and not safe in the adult world, personal boundaries, sexuality, privacy, and related. There are many new issues that arise in the transition to a teenager and adult. Our goal is to help the parent be well informed in order to help their child. Due to the sensitive nature of some of the topics, information is always presented in as an objective, factual manner as possible.
Community Educational Workshops
Part of our mission is educating the community about the unique needs as well as the strengths and capabilities of individuals with special needs. We wish to spread a sense of community acceptance and support for individuals with special needs. We firmly believe that every child has the right to be given the opportunity to learn and grow.
We provide educational workshops relating to information about specific behavior, developmental, and learning issues, acceptance and integration within the general population, respectful ways to interact with an individual with special needs, and more.
