Students who benefit from 504/IEPs in high school (and middle school) benefit from extended planning in the college search process. Join us as we discuss ways to enhance skills while in high school, how to identify schools that will continue to provide the supports that have ensured success for your child currently, and ways to engage your student in the choice process to reduce stress for the whole family. Topics to be covered included standardized testing, college visits, and identifying and anticipating a student's needs in a post secondary environment.

Girl Power is an innovative self-empowerment program for 5th-8th grade girls emphasizing being comfortable in your own skin. Combining an hour of yoga with discussion, journal writing and art, we explore how to manage stress and delve into how the media, self-care, our feelings and our thoughts influence our choices. This program also teaches media literacy (how to think differently about the images that are put upon us as women and girls by the media).
Sign your daughter up for one or all three programs. Each two hour workshop will focus on a different topic and each yoga portion of the class will introduce new poses that connect with the day's theme.
