Parent Circle Time: Supporting Your Child’s “Big Emotions” During Summer Break
July 28th 7:00 PM- 8:00 PM
This past year challenged families, caregivers, and children in ways they have never been challenged before. For many families, this created new and big emotions. Summer is a time to relax and recharge, but how is this possible given the unprecedented past year? How can we help our children manage their emotions as they enter the new school year? In this session, we will:
  • Address the underlying issues that are causing the “big emotions”
  • Discuss how children can express & address their emotions in a healthy way
  • Review strategies to address challenging behaviors at home
  • Identify tools parents can use to collaborate with their child’s teacher.

Opinion Survey: What is a parent-led SEPAG?
Special Education Parent Advisory Groups (SEPAGs) are required for all school districts in New Jersey. The purpose of these groups is to provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to their districts on critical issues relating to students with disabilities. By definition, a SEPAG is a parent advisory group. Best practices call for a parent-driven process that works closely with schools and the larger community. 

Encuesta de opinión: ¿Qué es un SEPAG dirigido por padres?
El estado de Nueva Jersey requiere la existencia de Consultivos de Padres en Educación Especial (SEPAG) en todos los distritos escolares. El propósito de estos grupos es brindar oportunidades para que los padres y miembros de la comunidad ofrezcan información a sus distritos sobre temas críticos relacionados con los estudiantes con discapacidades. Por definición, un SEPAG es un grupo consultivo de padres. Las mejores prácticas requieren un proceso impulsado por los padres que trabaje en estrecha colaboración con las escuelas y la comunidad en general.
