Our on-line workshops were created to allow parents to access evidence-based, reliable information, strategies and support for their children in a way that is convenient for them. Hectic lifestyles make it difficult to commit to attending in person classes and reading books or websites can leave a person feeling like they’re alone. On-line learning options provide flexibility by being open 24/7. If desired, a parent can revisit the same content multiple times. It also allows parents the ability to access information when it’s convenient for them.
