Happy Memorial Day! 🎉 Today's a great day to remind you of how you can support your kiddo in noisy and crowded places. When going to a parade or somewhere noisy, talk to your child about how to manage the crowd and noise. Bring earplugs, cotton balls, headphones, and/or a hooded sweatshirt to protect their ears from the noise of the crowds. #makesociallearningstick #makeitstickmonday #emotionalregulation #coregulation #socialemotionaldevelopment #letkidsplay #playislearning

Time-ins reinforce attachment and connection, reinforcing skills children will have and use for a lifetime including self-awareness, empathy, conflict resolution, and problem-solving.
Helping kids understand their testing results is tricky. Explaining the results of an assessment to children can be an empowering, life-changing event. However, when I first started having feedback sessions with young students, they often left my office with eyes glazed over, overwhelmed, and focused on the negative - not ideal!
