Several Parent Workshops in August
As you may know, the BWF strives to provide as many parent resources as possible, including a parent training workshop at least once a month. During the month of August, there is a multitude of parent training workshops being offered. It is not too late to sign up and you do not need to have a child enrolled in a BWF program in order to attend.
What's happening with CLASS?
Classroom Language and Academic Summer Services
August is a very busy month for the Brent Woodall Foundation! We started a new program, CLASS, to help children and parents get ready for for the upcoming school year. The first two weekends of CLASS went wonderfully and we are so excited to add CLASS to the list of wonderful programs the Brent Woodall Foundation provides.
It is not to late to register your child for the last two weekends of CLASS. Click on the link below to learn more and register.
A Word from Outreach:
For many parents the words "visual schedule" spark images of printed picture icons, heavy-duty Velcro, costly lamination, and a level of bright creativity only a third grade teacher can expect to pull off successfully.
For some children this type of schedule is ideal. It may even be the perfect fit while at school or other activities outside of home. For some therapists this type of schedule may be considered the ideal at-home schedule as well. However, the folks at Woodallkids Outreach have found that this vision often does not match the reality of a home environment.
They have also found that this is perfectly fine!
While any at-home visual schedule should be organized, readable, show completion, and prepare children for a written schedule, it is important to note that a schedule on a piece of paper with hand written instructions and a simple reinforcement system, such as check marks or happy faces, can be just as effective for some children as that "ideal" polished schedule of perfection.
for an example of how one Woodallkids Outreach family incorporates this principle into their morning routine with a list of things we just love about this at-home visual schedule.
