IPUL's E-News: November 22, 2019
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not all everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
Work of Art in Coeur d'Alene
Our Arts Coordinator, Heather Kirk-Skinner posted about our Work of Art event that just wrapped up in Coeur d'Alene this week:
We had such an extraordinary IPUL Work of Art event at the Human Rights Education Institute in CDA. 

Dr. Karolyn Rogers was our client sponsor and taught the students to play these Native American style flutes, and informed the symbols painted on the mural, skull and drum. (Rogers is an honorary member of a local tribe). 

Thank you to my IPUL Arts teachers, Teri Hanson, Valerie Andrus and Denise Hanrahan. The outcomes of this program extend far beyond the employment skill building and arts education it supports. 

Our rockstar board member Cait Christiansen came out to share in the evening-Thank you Cait! And the students made me a flute of my own. My heart is full. Thanks to Vocational Rehabilitation for underwriting this important program.

We Want Your News and Events!
We moved this down from the top of the page to make it a little more visible!

If you have news, information or upcoming events in your town that are relevant to families who have children with disabilities or special health care needs and would like us to share that information, please email the details to parents@ipulidaho.org for review.

Our program coordinator will then share this via IPUL's social media networks. We are also happy to add events to our calendar for people to find.

Parents often need strategies beyond a sticker chart to encourage good behavior. This training will help you learn to manage your child's behaviors in ways that are consistent with the approach of Idaho's schools - focusing on prevention, not punishment.
