First Membership Meeting & Expert Presentation – Ready, Get Set, Learn: How to Jumpstart your Child to Start his Work

Monday, September 19, 2016 @ 7pm, Manhasset Public Library

This event will start with a short business meeting, reviewing some of the programs and events we are planning for the upcoming school year, and the budget vote.

Following SEPTA business, Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M., ACAC, Certified ADHD Coach Specializing in Parenting Education and Support, brings us her new workshop – Ready, Get Set, Learn.

Often times we see our children stall, postpone (without an actual plan to do), or simply avoid doing their work. Getting started for many children (and adults!) is about feeling READY to begin: Emotionally, Physically, and Mentally. Tackling each of these issues in advance will make it easier to actually START, but the thought of preparing to work feels like added effort - and is often avoided. This workshop will address helping kids actually begin their work at an appropriate time. Click here for more details.
