Learn how to enrich your child’s language development by increasing vocabulary and building self-confidence through the use of American Sign Language (ASL). This workshop is an introduction to the benefits of using ASL with your child. Children are not only auditory learners they also learn visually and kinesthetically (touch and experience). Using sign language with your child encompasses all learning styles. Your child will hear you when you say the word, he/she will see you make the sign and will also experience/feel the word as he/she learns to sign. This workshop is designed for the busy parent; you will learn recommended first signs and easy techniques for successfully integrating signs into everyday life. Over 100 signs will be introduced. Option to include a full color MSH™ curriculum book. When: Tuesday, April 25th @ 6:30-8:30
Cost: $30/individual $55/couple with option to add curriculum book for $20
Are you wondering if it is time to introduce potty training at home? Are you wondering which potty chair to use? How about the choice between Pull-Ups and underwear? And what about rewards- praise? M&M’s? Sticker charts? We will be addressing all these common questions, and many more, during our evening Parent Workshop on Toilet Training.
We realize parents can feel overwhelmed by the well-meaning but often contradictory advice from friends & family and the numerous on-line resources and books. We understand each child has his/her own unique temperament style and deserves a clear, simple and stress-free toilet training approach. Wherever you may be on your child’s toilet training journey we welcome you to join us for an informative, supportive and fun evening. There will be plenty of time for personal questions and group support.
This workshop is appropriate for loving parents & caregivers of children one year and older.
This workshop will cover what behavior looks like in young children based on their emotional maturity and their temperament. Common behavioral challenges will be addressed and an effective and positive approach to handle them will be offered. There will be plenty of time for questions and real life situations. A few examples of issues addressed are: alternatives to time-outs and punishment, alternatives to rewards, handling “hurting” behaviors (hitting, pushing, biting, hair pulling), and appropriate praising.
