Individual Sessions – Behavior Consults with Eckert Psychology & Education Centre for PREP 3 parents
May 6 @ 9:15 am – 11:05 am

With Michelle Kerslake, Registered Provisional Psychologist

Friday Mar 18, Apr 15, May 6  9:15, 10:15, 11:15 (50 minute sessions)

Challenging behaviours can be a barrier to your child participating at school and in community activities.  The purpose of these individual consults is to motivate parents to get the help they need to take action.  Sharing your concerns is the key to becoming informed and aware of options for help in the community. We are excited to offer private one-on-one individual consults for parents to learn strategies.  The goal is to develop resilient, confident parent advocates who have a plan for their child’s future.

Spots are limited so register early by emailing Debbi@prepprog.org

No charge for PREP members thanks to the Woodridge Inclusion Support Fund.
