Positive Parenthood Course


“This class was transformative. Robin & Luke have given me tools and strategies I need to connect with my children and enable them to grow and learn.” – Sherry, Patrick & Riley sherry016

The focus of our Positive Parenthood Course is on giving families strategies to support children in their daily activities in a way that will enhance whole-child development.  Learn tools to help your family through behavioral challenges involving difficult transitions, emotional regulation, withdrawal, rigidity, and public outbursts.  Parents also learn to better attune to their children’s needs to forge deeper connections within the family.

Purpose: Parents of children with special needs often experience challenges in effectively managing their child’s behavior.  By enhancing communication and connection we help provide parents with specific hands-on positive behavior supports to offer parents a way to manage difficult stages of their child’s development.

Topics covered in the program include:

  • How to use effective praise to motivate your child
  • How to move your child through transitions and times of change
  • How to foster your child’s confidence and independence
  • How to reduce challenging behaviors and support increased regulation and self-control
