Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training

Friday, December 1, 2017

9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Child Mind Institute

Adults caring for children often have questions about how to set clear expectations and manage behavior effectively. Especially when children exhibit challenging behaviors, adults want to know exactly how to address these situations with strategies that promote positive behavior, good social-emotional development, and increased self-esteem. The Child Mind Institute's B.E.S.T. Program (Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training for parents, nannies, and caregivers) provides just this sort of preparation. Informed by the most up-to-date research, clinicians provide adults with a structured training experience aimed at the teaching and immediate application of practical techniques for effective behavior management.

Special Education Symposium: Navigating Your Child’s Learning Disability Diagnosis

Thursday, December 7, 2017

9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Child Mind Institute

A one day symposium for parents of children in grades K-8 with language based learning disabilities.

One of the biggest challenges that parents of children diagnosed with a learning disability (LD) face is navigating the complicated special education system. The Special Education Symposium brings together experts in the fields of advocacy, school placement, school admissions, finance and law to provide practical tools and information that parents can use to help their children with an LD.

Parents will receive information about the supports and accommodations that mainstream schools can provide to students with special education needs, as well as the services provided by specialized schools and how to pursue specialized placement. Parents will also receive tips on financial planning for special education and gain an understanding of the legal process around funding and obtaining accommodations. The day ends with a panel of parents who will share their experiences navigating the special education process.
