FOCUS AREA:

This month we will focus on Child Development. Understanding what kinds of things kids will be learning academically and socially this school year and checking–in with them about their experiences can alert parents to any difficulties kids may be encountering before a crisis develops. This can also prepare parents to help children deal with these challenges.
