Parent Recharge meets the first and third Thursday mornings featuring unstructured conversation with other parents and caregivers. On the second, fourth and fifth Thursdays, there are focused discussions around a specific topic. Join us to learn, laugh, ask questions, and enjoy a morning out while your children socialize in our playroom. Coming up:

October 10: Special Education and Individualized Education Plans. What’s an IEP? How do I know if my child needs one? Does last year’s IEP still fit? Join this discussion to learn more about your basic rights and how you can become a more effective member of your child’s IEP team. Facilitated by Jo Ann Clement. Sign up now

October 24: Coping With Worry and Anxiety. Feeling  “stressed out” can impact children’s  self-esteem, academic functioning, social relationships, and family life. This talk will provide you with an understanding of how anxiety impacts children and adolescents and practical ways to improve coping skills. Dr. Laura Rubin of Portsmouth Neuropsychology Center will address the following key points:
1) Identify signs of stress/anxiety in your child
2) Learn strategies for helping to decrease your child’s stress/anxiety
3) Become more aware of how parent stress contributes to child stress
