In summer 2019, the Confident Kid Club teachers were busy bettering themselves with continuing education.

 

Carmella Crowley trained in Fundations, a Wilson reading program for pre-k (kindergarten readiness) and kindergarten-age students that is:

  • for at-risk readers 
  • comprises multi-sensory instruction — to engage all parts of the brain 
  • presented in an integrated approach 

Each lesson addresses:

  • phonemic awareness
  • phonics
  • fluency
  • vocabulary
  • comprehension strategies

All children learn differently — this teaching approach addresses all aspects of a child’s education

Carmella is pleased to offer an additional service incorporating these methods into your child’s curriculum.

Katharine Page learned new innovative interventions to help children with Anxiety, ADHD, ASD, ODD, mood disorders and other social emotional challenges.

Art Therapy 77 Creative Interventions for Challenging Children Who Shut Down, Meltdown or Act Out

This coursework was a blend of cognitive behavioral skills, art-making, and creative problem-solving to help children by creating individualized social, emotional, and behavioral interventions 

Katharine built upon her knowledge of creative techniques and strategies to:

  • build relationships and personal connections
  • increase self-esteem
  • develop self-regulation
  • increase perspective taking and problem solving skills

Katharine is looking forward to incorporating these creative, hands-on art experiences into the Confident Kid Club Fall 2019 Social Skills Program curriculum.

We can’t wait to see our returning students and newcomers in the Fall 2019 semester!
