    Meeting #2: Parent training opportunity




    SEPAC #1: Parent Training

    The following virtual presentation is open to any parent/guardian who would like to attend.

    The Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is hosting a presentation entitled How to Talk to Your Kids and Survive on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. Presentation will be held virtually beginning at 6:00pm. Below are details on the presentation and the link to attend.  No registration is required. 


    How to Talk to Your Kids and Survive: In today’s world, trends move faster than we
    realize, and children are often more up to date than parents. This workshop is for parents
    and caregivers to learn best practices for how to talk to children about anything and
    everything. Parents and caregivers will also learn how their own behaviors impact their
    children’s mental wellness, such as using cell phones. Parents will feel energized to go
    home and start talking.
