Family Oriented Programming

Family Oriented Programming

Family Oriented Programming are learning opportunities for families that focus on a variety of students needs – generally geared towards our youngest students  – often those who are Program Unit Funded (PUF students). CESD generally orchestrates what is offered, and information is provided at the school level to families, by experts in various fields – be it Psychology, OT, PT, SLP.  Topics range from fine motor supports, to emotional regulation, relationships, gross motor work, articulation strategies and so on. Sessions are developed based on the needs of the students and parents to ensure all sessions are relevant and useful in supporting the growth of families and our students. This is for pre-K kindergarten students and it is free for parents.
