Online Parent Trainings

How Technology, Organization, and Structure affect Behavior

As we have learned to navigate educational platforms such as google classroom and zoom lessons, our skill sets online are becoming more proficient. Although we have become more accustomed as to how to log on and problem solve "technology" issues, we are left with other variables that impact our students ability to access the instruction...behavior. In this training, we will talk through what may be your current learning environment and offer suggestions for small changes that can have a positive impact on the stress level in your home.
