Summer Routines: Visual Supports & Behaviors-Oh My!
Life with young children can be challenging during the summer season. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss both the challenges and celebrations of summer, and how to meet those challenges head on. Creating routines and visual supports to help minimize behaviors will be a primary objective of this workshop. We will share ideas, stories, and activities that will help make your summer a fun one.
