What you will learn:

In this course, we will discuss various topics related to parenting and go behind the scenes in our children's brain to look at development. We will touch upon common parenting struggles and discuss real-life solutions to them. Ideas for achieving the sacred work-life balance will also be discussed. In addition, we will talk about "red flags" and what to do if we encounter these in our child's development. There will be conversation about key anchors all children need in their day along with how much our modeling affects our children and their behavior. Class participation is strongly encouraged and stories are welcome!

About the instructor:

My name is Courtney and I am a Developmental Therapist for families who have children with special needs in Massachusetts. I specialize in the early years of child development. I have worked one-on-one with parents and their children for the past 20 years. In my current role, I help parents access needed special education services from their town's public school system; administer age appropriate assessments; assist parents with finding the right clinicians for their child's needs; inform families of community resources; note red flags in development that need further assessment, and where to go for a potential diagnosis. I have a Masters in Education with focus on Special Education. In addition, my professional knowledge has helped immensely in raising a now middle-schooler who was born a 2 lb. preemie. My hope is to pass on my professional knowledge to support you and your relationship with your child. I understand the reality of being a working parent while also trying to raise a child in todays world. I am dedicated towards empowering parents and caregivers so they feel that they are parenting to their best ability. I am passionate about everything related to child development and giving our children the strongest possible foundation.
