We’re almost half way through July’s session and the conversations have been incredible. Kieran Rose even popped in for an enlightening live discussion on autism in the classroom!

July’s pilot group includes 175 administrators, educators, psychologists, home schoolers, advocates, therapists, and parents from around the world – Each person bringing their own unique knowledge, experiences, and questions.

Multiple Zoom chats each week have provided a unique opportunity to connect and network with change-makers all over the word! These chats will be more valuable than ever with this extraordinary transition back to school.

We’ve been diving deep into issues surrounding best practices, emotional health, trauma informed practices, inclusion, systemic inequities, and childhood development. We’ll be building on those discussions in August!

This is a book study for anyone who cares for children – Teachers, paraprofessionals, bus drivers, administrators, parents, therapists, counselors, doctors, you name it!

We’re going to spend the month of August looking beyond the behaviors, beyond the IEP’s, beyond the behavior management plans, beyond the classrooms. We’re getting back to the basics of supporting children – with the latest brain science to back it up!

Everyone’s nervous about the upcoming school year. What will it look like? How will we ever catch them up? The pressure is intense right now and our kids can feel it. Trauma informed practices and protecting their emotional health will be more important than ever.

This book reminds us why compassion and safety are so important. Isn’t that why you started this journey in the first place? Come connect with others and lets build new strategies for supporting our kids.
